2019 Domaine Jean-Charles Rion Hautes-Côtes-de-Nuits Blanc "Les Millottes", Burgundy, France



The vineyard is managed in a traditional way, using sustainable cultivation methods, in order to limit inputs as much as possible, taking into account the climatic hazards of each year. The harvest is carried out manually followed by rigorous sorting, favoring only the healthiest berries. Vinification takes place in open stainless steel vats at carefully controlled temperatures throughout the alcoholic fermentation process.


This estate of almost 6 hectares of vines has recently been led by Jean-Charles Rion (fifth generation of winegrowers), son of Olivier Rion and grandson of Daniel Rion. Created in 1995 with 1 hectare of vines in the Côte de Nuits Villages appellation, this farm located in Prémeaux-Prissey, now offers appellations spanning the Côte de Beaune, the Côte de Nuits and the Hautes Côtes de Nuits.

Jean-Charles completed his schooling at the Beaune wine high school (Bac STAE and BTS viticulture-oenology) then obtained his vineyard and wine license at the Jules Guyot institute in Dijon. After three years of professional experience within the family estate (Daniel Rion and sons) in 2008, 2009 and 2010 he chose to embark on the great adventure as a young winegrower on his own farm. A profession that he practices with passion and seriousness. His only wish is to produce AOP wines of quality reflecting the expression of the region's many beautiful terroirs.
