The smallest of the major estates in Burgundy is one of the few that still makes wine in the historical centre of Beaune in oval wooden vats. The Jaffelin estate presses its grapes in a vertical wine-press; a rare, traditional technique using handmade vats.
Founded in 1816, the maison Jaffelin house is now considered the smallest of the great houses of Burgundy. The house Jaffelin vinifies and ages his wines in the historic center of Beaune in the prestigious cellars of the Chapter of Our Lady of the twelfth century, maintaining traditional methods. This allows for “hand sewn” wines coming from “small villages” as Rully, Santenay, Monthélie, Fixin but also best known villages such as Beaune, Gevrey-Chambertin, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Chambolle Musigny.
