A unique expertise. It is the sign of: quality products, a legacy with particular character. It’s the company’s benchmark brand.
The winery boasts the most extensive cellars in the Burgundy region with “caves” that extend for five kilometres under the streets of Beaune and which contain thousands of bottles of fine wine from the company’s long and distinguished history.
The ownership of the business has only passed through a handful of families since his time and was built up to its present importance by the Boisseaux family post World War II.
