Domaine Huguenot

France, Burgundy

The Huguenots can trace their history in Marsannay and working in the vines back to 1789. Currently the domaine is run by Philippe. His father Jean-Louis expanded the domaine from five to twenty-two hectares (twelve in Marsannay, six in Fixin, and four in Gevrey) before handing over the reins. Philippe has taken the bold step of taking all twenty-two hectares into organic production (the conversion was completed in 2010). Philippe's arrival has also been accompanied by a big jump in quality, and the ranges of 2010 and 2011 wines now available a great value too.
