Our domain has a lot of history. They say that it goes back to 1540. It comes, more recently from my grandmother who was called Mary Bourgogne, she married Emile Claude Rebourgeon, this is the origin of the name. They had 2 boys, Henry and Michel, the two became winegrowers and settled in Pommard. Michel took over his share of the domain in 1964.
We then established with my husband Stephen in 1995. Since, we had 2 boys, William born in 1998 and Samuel born in 2001.
With my brother, we extended the domain by purchasing vines in 1998 and in 2004. We now exploit 4.25 hectares on three villages: Beaune, Pommard and Volnay.
We bottle all our production and the majority off our wine is sold to private customers from our shop in Place de l'Europe, Pommard. 10% of our production is export.
All the wines are vinified in our cuverie, rue de Francorchamps. Where after manual harvest and carefull selection , the grapes are put through the destalking machine and by means of an elevator the grapes are slowly put in the fermentation vats which are temperature controlled. Here, the grapes go through a seven day cold soak before the alcoholic fermentation takes place which can last for up to 14 days. No artificial yeasts are used, the fermentation process is completely natural.
