Jean-Marc Burgaud created this domaine in 1989. He produces wines from Beaujolais Villages and Régnié, but most of his production is in Morgon. He and his wife Christine own about 19 hectares of vine: 13 hectares in Morgon, complemented by another five hectares of Beaujolais Villages and another in Regnie. Though not certified, he has not used chemicals in the vineyard for over a decade. The vines are planted high density in order to enhance fruit concentration, and he usually picks later than many other growers. He practices a semi-carbonic maceration with regular pumping over in order to keep the fruit moist. The wines are raised in concrete vats. Stylistically they lean toward the rest of Burgundy: more serious Beaujolais wines that will reward cellaring. This wine bears lots of spice, with bright notes of stewed raspberries, and dark juicy cherries. An earthy component reflects the grantic soils in which the grapes grow. Wrapped together with bracing acidity and just enough tannin to hold it all in place.
