Jean-Charles Fagot in the Wine Advocate

A selection of Jean-Charles Fagot's wines have been featured in the Wine Advocate, with high praise from William Kelley, who says: "Keenly priced, flavorful and expressive, they reflect a restauranteur's priorities, and they'd make excellent daily drinkers or by-the-glass pours. With higher appellation Burgundy becoming more expensive by the hour, they're well worth seeking out."

The Fagot family has been located in the small village of Corpeau since 1860. Just outside Chassagne-Montrachet, it is located near some of the most prestigious vineyards in the Cote de Beaune, so it would be fair to say that wine is in the family’s blood. Jean-Charles is part of the 5th generation of Fagots in the area and the third generation to own vineyard acreage in Chassagne- Montrachet. On his estate vineyards, Jean-Charles employs lutte raisonée, a method of growing in which chemical intervention is employed only when necessary. The wines are vinified traditionally and naturally, utilizing oak foudres and 12-14 month long aging periods in the Fagot cellars.
