Pierre and Véronique Janny bought the estate in 1982 and have been joined by their daughter Céline in 2003. They are located in the village of Peronne, 20 kilometers North of Mâcon. The estate benefits from a great sun exposure on both sides of the valley.
Date Founded: 1982
Owner: Pierre and Veronique Janny
Pierre is an agronomic engeneer and he has very good knowledge on Vinification as well as Viticulture. Veronique's family is also involved in the wine trade, as they have been growing grapes for 2 generations. Their philosophy is to produce a wine in the traditional style of Mâcon, with minimal intervention and not use of Oak.
This is a 6-hectare (14.8 acres) vineyard planted with Chardonnay (5.5 ha), Gamay and Pinot Noir (0.5 ha). The oldest vines are 100 year old. The younger vines are 35 years. The wine is a blend of the younger vines with the older vines. Everything is harvested by hand. The soils is made of Clay and Limestone (Argilo-Calcaire) and the parcels are located right next to Viré Clessé Appelation.
