Jean-Marc is a trained oenologist and started his career as a winemaker in 1985, and his first vintage was made in the new premises close to Chagny in 1991. He has now taken over complete control of the domain from his father Jean, and today the domain's holdings, are mainly located in the commune of Chassagne-Montrachet have significantly increased in size from 5 hectares to 11 hectares. Half is dedicated to white production, and the other half to red.

Today Jean-Marc has to be one of the top three(ish) estates of Chassagne and his wines have are garnering plenty of press reviews to support that. He is widely regarded as one of the region’s most fastidious and focused vignerons who is solely driven towards the ambitious goal of being the region's pinnacle domain. His rise to this eminence has been the result of his focus, hard work, raw talent and the extraordinary array of climats he has at his disposal. Unfortunately demand for his wines has soared worldwide and as a result and stocks are extremely limited so it might be worth stocking up while you have the chance.

The vineyards are naturally managed. The whites are hand harvested, gently crushed but not destemmed then pressed. A light setting happens at cold temperature before the wines are moved into barrel for a slow, long fermentation at 15 degrees centigrade. The barrels are used for three years, with one third new oak. The wines stay on their lees in the barrels for 12 months and then racked into tanks, where they stay for additional 6 months before bottling.
