We are Chantal and Éric COUDERT-APPERT
Chantal (born in 1967) started in 1991 taking over from her father Michel after having passed a BTS (≈ HND) in vines and wine at the Beaune school of wine, Eric (born in 1964) used to be a carpenter but returned to the estate on the retirement of his father-in-law, after having done adult training at the Macon-Davayé wine school in 1997. Both our families come from a vinegrowing and winemaking background and our estate has belonged to the Appert family for over a century.
We do all the work ourselves, following the wine through from pruning the vines to the glass. Work we carry out through the year includes all the work on the land as well, of course, as crafting the wine itself. The passion we have for our chosen profession finds its roots in this: to see our product evolve stage by stage. Over the years we have grown to know the faces of our plots and their needs as you would a loved one. Never forgetting that mother nature always has the last word.
