Fougeray de Beauclair • Marsannay

Ollivier-sepiaLocated in the village of Marsannay, Domaine Fougeray de Beauclair was founded in 1979 by Jean-Louis Fougeray. Fougeray made his first cuvee from vines that the family had acquired only 6 years earlier. Holding onto an administrative job during the day, Jean-Louis Fougeray farmed his small parcel of vines during evenings and weekends. Laurence, his daughter, remembers her father traveling to Paris to try to sell the 500 bottles from his first vintage. Laurence’s grandfather, Jean-Louis’ father, had worked most of his life for the Clair family of Marsannay (of the esteemed Clair-Daü Estate), and a strong friendship developed that spanned the next generation between Bernard Clair and Jean-Louis Fougeray. Upon Bernard’s retirement in 1986, conflicts concerning inheritance arose in the Clair family, which led to Bernard leasing vines to Jean-Louis, who rechristened the domaine Fougeray de Beauclair, blending the names of Jean-Louis’ wife (Beau) with that of Clair. The additional vines pumped up the size and prestige of the production which included parcels of Chambolle-Musigny and Bonnes Mares Grand Cru. Laurence and husband Patrice Ollivier now run the family business, with as much heart and soul as Jean-Louis during its humble beginnings.

Francois-mikulski-sepiaFrançois Mikulski • Meursault

François Mikulski owns 7 hectares (about 17 acres) of vineyards which stretch over 10 different appellations, mainly in Meursault. He is one of a new generation of winemakers in Burgundy who have broadened their views with ideas from the rest of the world, and it is proving himself to be a star of the future. Founded in 1992, the domaine is relatively young according to Burgundian standards. Mikulski gained experience with Josh Jensen at Calera Wine Company in California, and has also exchanged ideas with Littorai’s winemaker Ted Lemon when the latter was working at Domaine Roulot in Meursault. Recognised as one of Meursault’s superstars, his wines express tension between explosive aromatics, sumptuous textures and crackling minerality.

Laurent2Michel Juillot • Mercurey

Domaine Michel Juillot is one of the leading estates in Mercurey. Laurent Juillot is the fourth generation to run the 32 hectare domaine and he has inherited his father Michel’s attention to detail and focus on quality. The domaine produces a varied range of wines, from village Bourgogne up to the Grand Crus of Corton Perrières and Corton-Charlemagne. The Domaine is run along the principles of lutte raisonnée. Harvest is done exclusively by hand (quite unusual knowing the annual production is approx. 180,000 bottles of which 50% are exported).
