The Domaine is now fully certified Biodynamic.

Domaine Darviot Perrin
Didier and daughter Alix Anne Darviot are quintessential vignerons; a tightly knit team that oversees every phase of the wine making process from pruning and plowing to racking the casks and bottling on their own premises. Didier learned the trade from his father-in-law Pierre Perrin who was a legendary figure in the wine making echelons of Meursault and Volnay.

Domaine Joseph Voillot
“I continue to hold Jean-Pierre in the highest regard—he is the quintessential Burgundy vigneron with an innate knowledge of winemaking that makes him one of the most respected, if not high profile, in the region. His wines are a masterclass in under-statement, letting the terroir do all the talking”. Neal Martin

2018 Volnay 1er Cru Les Champans $129.95

Domaine Humbert Freres

They took over the Domaine from their parents in 1989 and since then they have been quietly and steadily improving the quality of their wine. Today they produce wines which reflect their dedicated effort and experience of the past 12 vintages. Emmanuel is the dynamic force behind this domaine:
