A pioneer in biodynamic growing in the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune
1984: Domaine founded by Didier Montchovet
Our Domaine was founded by Didier Montchovet in 1984, when he took out the lease for a tiny 0.5-hectare plot of vines in Nantoux. From a vigneron family in Nantoux, this young consultant winemaker and wine tasting instructor, worked the vineyards using organic and biodynamic growing methods, listening to and respecting nature. We are the first wine domaine in Burgundy to have received Demeter biodynamic certification.
At a time when people were just starting to re-consider the whole “all chemical” approach, when the concept of terroir and the incalculable value of Burgundy’s Climats were not yet fully appreciated by all, Didier Montchovet was among a small bunch of pioneering producers who were discussing and practicing an eco-friendly and solidarity-driven viticulture that was truly sustainable long before the word became fashionable. Keen to educate others, they shared their expertise with many other wine estates, both modest and famous, inspiring them to follow this path that respects man in his environment.
