Jean-Claude Boisset   Jean-Claude Boisset Logo

Jean-Claude Boisset has undergone a radical transformation since the arrival in 2002 of viticulture Gregory Patriat, one of the best of the younger generation of viticulturist/winemakers.

Gregory had spent the previous three years working in the vineyards at Domaine Leroy and still spends a great deal of his time in the vineyards, paying his growers by the hectare in order to ensure low yields.

He also prefers to work with organic growers, as he finds they produce better fruit. Unlike other Burgundian negociants, Gregory specialises in making wines from "lieu-dits" or tiny plots of vines, something which accounts for the limited production of most of his wines.
