Domaine Huguenot

DESCRIPTION

The Huguenots can trace their history in Marsannay and working in the vines back to 1789. Two generations ago Domaine Huguenot was quite modest in size. Philippe Huguenot’s grandparents ran a domaine of just two-three hectares. It was Philippe’s father, Jean-Louis Huguenot, who began buying more land. During his years at the helm of the domaine – from 1968 to 1993 – it grew to 17 hectares.

Currently the domaine is run by Philippe. He has taken the bold step of taking all twenty-two hectares (twelve in Marsannay, six in Fixin, and four in Gevrey) into organic production (the conversion was completed in 2010). They obtained the Ecocert certification in 2013

We are working the soils like an « Haute couture » manufacturer. We do everything by hands in the vineyards. We let the wines express their “terroir” the most natural way possible.
