DOMAINE DE LA VOUGERAIE
Nuits-Saint-Georges - Burgundy Since 1999
Emblematic Burgundy vineyards
The family estate unites a collection of prestigious parcels, Premiers, Grands Crus and Monopoles, and applies the principles of biodynamics to both the vine and the cellar. The constant search for the spiritual and carnal balance of each wine guides his steps. Faithful to the Cistercian spirit in the rigor and the quest of purity, and an additional soul, the Domaine de la Vougeraie is a bridge between today's Burgundy and time immemorial.
In 1632 a certain Mayor possessed vineyards and cellars in Arbois. Three centuries later, the young Henri Maire received inheritance the modest family property. He is 22 years old. Passionate about the wines of the Jura, he decided to make them known and, to give himself the means, he increased his properties, until today become with 280 hectares the most important owner of the Jura. This winegrower of excellence offers us a beautiful palette of golden wines, with accents of nuts endowed with an immense length in mouth.
As a pioneer of California blend wines, Lyeth vinifies its wines according to the tradition of the great Bordeaux wines, with Cabernet-Sauvignon as its emblematic grape variety. In order to define the style of these wines, the association Meritage was created in 1988 and Lyeth is one of the founding members. This art of assembly is known as Meritage Style, an English neologism combining merit and inheritance.

NATHALIE & JEAN-CHARLES BOISSET
Our heritage At the heart of Burgundy, a young man decided to embark in the wine adventure. Jean-Claude Boisset was only 18 years old. Driven by passion and youth's ardor he had a bright future ahead of him. The story took place in the summer 1961 next to Gevrey-Chambertin, the village where he grew up. From the 70s the wines started to be exported in Europe. Jean-Claude Boisset settled in Vougeot, then in Nuits-Saint-Georges. In the 80s activity increased through external growth and diversification with the introduction of spirits in 1988 and sparkling wines in 1990. The following years were marked by the willingness to take root at the heart of each terroir: the Beaujolais, the Languedoc and the Rhône. In the 2000s, the new millenary brought us to a new continent as we settled up in California. The story continues with the acquisition of the greatest wine estate in the Jura, les Domaines Henri Maire.
