Domaine Vincent & François Jouard

Francois and Vincent are one of the few domaines to specialize in this appellation. They only bottle part of our production. Francois is the winemaker and Vincent works the vines. The brothers are very attached to their wine heritage and the value of the soil handed down by their family. The same philosophy applies to vineyard work: joint decision making in each parcel, sustainable viticulture is a priority with extensive plowing in order to avoid chemical weeding.

Francois and Vincent are one of the few domaines to specialize in this appellation. They only bottle part of our production. Francois is the winemaker and Vincent works the vines. The brothers are very attached to their wine heritage and the value of the soil handed down by their family. The same philosophy applies to vineyard work: joint decision making in each parcel, sustainable viticulture is a priority with extensive plowing in order to avoid chemical weeding.


The family holding represents 11 hectares (a little over 27 acres). The Jouard brothers produce 95% white wines, and only 5% red Chassagne-Montrachet. 250 cases are produced assuring only the highest quality wines. The only vines that go into the Jouard estate bottlings are old vines (over 50 years), therefore Vieilles Vignes appears on every label. For all the wines, Francois Jouard uses 1/3 new oak and works with the best barrel-makers—Chassin, Gillet, Billon.


Situated to the South of the village of Chassagne-Montrachet, on the foothill, 2 types of soil compose this parcel : light and pebbly on the bottom of the hill and deep clay on the top. South of the Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet is a large and beautiful hillside ideal for the two main Burgundian varietals:  Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The complexity of the soil results in wines that are elegant, luscious, and lovely to drink.
