Producer Profile

Jean Berthet-Bondet has been working his land since 1984.

With a humble 15 hectares of 30 year old vines, this estate may well be small but it is steeped in history and heritage. Half of Jean's land is in the Château Chalon appellation which is home to the Savagnin grape, renowned for making the revered Vin Jaune. A unique wine that has seen a resurgence of popularity in recent years, but has always been appreciated by the knowledgeable few.


The domain has an area of 15 hectares under organic cultivation and vineyards certified since 2010, including 6 ha of Savagnin, 5 ha of Chardonnay, 1 ha of Pinot noir, 1 ha of Poulsard and 1 ha of Trousseau. Most of the vines have been planted in the 1980's. The Savagnin vines are located around Château-Chalon and the other parcels are in different nearby villages. Vineyard work is mostly done by hand, with grass in every other row and carefully managed work on the soil.


The Pinot Noir is selected from parcels including old vines planted in the 70's and another planted more recently in 2017. Harvest is done manually, the grapes are destemmed before a maceration for 10 days. The wine is then aged in oak barrels for 14 months.
