Commentaire


« 1978 is one of the most beautiful vintages I vinified. Undoubtely, one of the best in the century. The grapes had a lot of millerandage, the clusters were rather loose which allowed them to resist in a summer that started off badly, but then September was extraordinary and October was exceptional. The harvest was light. I had a average yield of 22 hl/ha! We picked the grapes late, October 13 to 17 in my area. » Henri Jayer.

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. Jayer’s 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.
