Henri Jayer was born in 1922 and died in 2006. After his retirement in 2001, Henri Jayer passed responsibility of his vineyards to his protégé, Jean-Nicolas Méo and the day to day running of the Domaine to his nephew, Emmanuel Rouget. He gathered up a small estate of 6,30 hectares, that are concentrated in and around Vosne-Romaneé and comprising everything from Passe-Tout-Grains to Echézeaux.
Jayer focussed his energy and expertise in producing top-class grapes to vinify from vines that are more than 50 years old. Jayers vinification methods were not particularly unusual but aimed as perfect equilibrium as possible. One of his most iconic wines - Cros Parantoux - is a premier cru situated in Vosne-Romanée and is now one of the most celebrated wines in all of Burgundy.
Henri Jayer was regarded as the one person that influenced the skill of younger wine growers in Burgundy over the last two decades.
