ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

Since the 17th century our ancestors have been winemakers in St Denis de Vaux. Robert Joussier started purchasing parcels of vineyards and created his structure in 1930. He began by selling his wine in barrels.

Henri Joussier extended the estate and moved onto the property in the 1950s, and released the first bottling with the 1959 vintage.

Vincent bought Domaine de l’Évêché in 1985 to live in and continued with his father Henri to expand the operation.
Jean Baudot had purchased the domaine in 1936, which had been planted since the Middle Ages, and perhaps even earlier.

He tore out the vines to plant fruit trees – mainly apples and pears. His high-end fruit business was very successful. With no heir to follow, Mr. Baudot decided to sell his property to a young winemaker who would replant new vines.

The 12 acres of land were planted with a very rigorous selection of Pinot Noir. To add to this, we have rejuvenated our Chardonnay and Aligoté vineyards, which express themselves particularly well on the stony ground of the “Reviller” appellation.

In 1990, we had the opportunity to expand our vineyards in Mercurey with acreage in “Les Ormeaux”, followed by the “Murgers” in 1998.

2018 saw the installation of our son Quentin and the renovation of the winery. Today, we – Quentin, Sylvie and Vincent – operate 35 acres of vineyards.
