The current owner of Domaine Jean Chartron - Jean-Michel Chartrons is a member of the fifth generation of the famous Burgundy wine dynasty. The domain was founded in 1859 by great-grandfather, Jean-Michel named Jean-Edouard Dyupard, who was involved in winemaking and cooperage. At that time, due to a lack of underground cellars of the main part of the wine sold in barrels merchants and wine Domaine Jean Chartrons were bought mostly by German traders. The first bottled wine own production decided to Father Jean-Michel, who since the 90s of the last century has significantly increased the number of family-owned vineyards. For several years, he has acquired plots in the Corton-Charlemagne, Savigny-les-Beaune, Saint Oben and battery-Montrachet, and in 2006, rented a few vineyards in Ryuyi. Today farming processes and harvests 13 hectares of land planted with vines mostly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Since the 80s, Jean Chartrons abandoned the use of chemical fertilizers, and his son continues to adhere to organic methods in growing grapes. He believes that in viticulture especially need to listen to nature and be sensitive land and vines. Therefore, every wine producer that has a unique character that reflects the unique characteristics of its terroir.
