the Jessiaume familly
The family’s story begins in 1830 with the acquisition of the estate of the Marquis of Saint-Innocent in Santenay.
Successive generations of talented winemakers created the Jessiaume Estate, producing vintage after vintage of high-quality wines. The work was then divided between my Uncle Pascal taking care of the vine growing with Marc, my father, in the fermenting room.
Since 1830, the Jessiaume family has been deeply rooted in Santenay, in Burgundy.
We are lucky to grow wine in the unique land of Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise. These exceptional areas of land push us every day to excel ourselves.
“ What I’ve inherited is not only an estate. It’s an expectation.
An expectation of ensuring the exceptional quality for which my family’s wines are known. „
Representing the sixth generation of the Jessiaume family, I am proud to honour this history, today leading my own wine trading and making maison.
In order to get closer to the terroirs that are dear to me, in 2022 I acquired 12.5 hectares of vines in the Pommard, Saint-Aubin, Beaune, Saint-Romain and Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune appellations.
My passion and the expertise that I inherited enabled me in 2012 to win the Young Talent trophy, awarded by Allen Meadows.
Finding harmony with our wines allows us to understand them, to feel their spirit.
Beyond our meticulous care and rigorous approach, we also bring energy, passion and excellence to our wines. Each of our harvests and wine-making processes is designed to bring out the best of our land.
