At Domaine Jean Maréchal, owner-harvesters in Burgundy from father to son for several generations, we offer top quality wines, with controlled designation of origin, harvested from the best vintages.
With the succession of several generations of winegrowers, the elaboration of our wines within our domain is the culmination of a long tradition and constant evolution according to technical advances.
Burgundy is but a small land-locked region in the east-central part of France, but it is highly regarded in the world of wines. “Burgundies” (or wines hailing from this region) are usually reds made from pinot noir grapes and whites made from chardonnay grapes.
The climate is continental, bearing cold winters and hot summers. Vintages are somewhat more important here because of unpredictable weather—rains, hail, and frost are can all happen during harvest time.
Burgundy is a terroir-driven region (as opposed to producer-driven Bordeaux). Classifications are focused on geography—with 400 types of soil, a great deal of attention is given to the area of origin. This is made obvious by their wine labels, where appellations are more prominent than producers.
There are 5 primary wine growing areas where more than 100 appellations are present (the highest count of AOCs in France).
