Domaine Émilian Gillet

France, Burgundy

Jean Thévenet is now ceding control of the domaine to his son Gautier, who has gone into partnership with Olivier Girard, the better to manage the increase in vineyard area that has come from the addition of the Domaine de Roally. Jean says he is 'planning to spend more time in the vineyard'. With the change in the structure comes a change in the Emilian Gillet label (from 2006 vintage onward), which now incorporates Olivier and Gautier's names.
