The Désertaux family continue their long tradition of keeping Pinot Blanc in their blends. This remains to this day an authentic signature of the estate. Combined with a small percentage of Chardonnay, the variety brings to this cuvée of Bourgogne Blanc its characteristic flowery notes.
“THIS BOURGOGNE BLANC IS A BEAUTIFUL DISCOVERY OF THE PINOT BLANC, A VARIETAL WHICH IS BECOMING RARE. IT OFFERS A NICE FRESHNESS, THANKS TO THE FINESSe OF ITS AGING IN OAK BARRELS.”
Bernard Neveu, Head Sommelier of Bristol - Restaurant Épicure (3 Michelin stars)

Meet the winemaker!
Founded in 1899, this estate of 20 hectares is now managed by Christine and her brother Vincent, supported by this wife Geneviève. This family estate rhymes with authenticity, respect and loyalty. Located in Corgoloin, it is ideally based in the heart of the "côte", where Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune meet. The Désertaux family work in accordance with the finest Burgundian tradition, by preserving the little used Pinot Blanc varietal. You will be able to meet them if you stay in their bed and breakfast or just visit their cellar.
