Jean Claude Boisset

The story of Jean-Claude Boisset is unique in Burgundy and is the basis of the very spirit of the company. His extraordinary story began in the early 1960s in an optimistic and confident France. The son of schoolmasters, he founded his young winery - next to Gevrey-Chambertin - at an early age. He had three main things on his side: optimism, tenacity and luck. These assets quickly boosted his international sales, first in Great Britain, followed gradually by Europe and then the United States. Throughout this time, he enjoyed the loving support of his mother. Customer relationships were forged and grew through friendship and a common bond of wine. The family spirit resides in the company's soul as it is still at the heart of everything it does. One generation follows another, yet the essential energy remains the same.

Jean-Claude Boisset opened his operations in Nuits-Saint-Georges, in the former Ursuline convent. Here, in this solid building constructed in Burgundian stone, the Ursuline nuns forced to flee the revolution and left behind something of their spirit. In its large enclosed garden, among the rows of apple trees, pruning yews, boxwood, and other fruit trees, you can still almost hear their murmurs in the silence.

In the labyrinthine cellars and Mother Superior's quarters - with their attentive view of the Côte and proximity to Premiers Crus - the sense of peace and serenity is palpable. This place, steeped in prayer, calm and, as is often the case here, an intangible sense of mystery, has become our 'home'.

The company's philosophy can be summed up in three words: origins, purity and elegance. Origins: the representation of terroir in its original form. It also evokes the origins of the appellations that are part of the history of Jean-Claude Boisset. Purity: the pure forms of 'real' wines, the fruits of the earth. A purity of taste, in an unadulterated form, without oenological additions. Elegance: a modern style, but rooted in change and up-to-date. Pure distinctiveness.

The wines reflect the Burgundy. As a result, the winery's wine collections originated. Each appellation results from rigorous selection and has been produced in limited quantities. This is the Burgundy way of things: meticulously handmade, according to a philosophy of 'letting the vine do the work'. A taste reveals the aim to strive for authentic wines in which human intervention has been kept to an essential and discreet minimum; the wines are concentrated, well-rounded, and - of course - expressive of their terroir. When people are silent, the land can speak.
