Jean Luc Maldant created his domaine in 1988 starting with 2.5 hectares in Chorey-les-Beaune, Savigny-les-Beaune and Aloxe Corton. In 2003, he partnered with Arnauld Jobard to heighten the quality of their winemaking. Jean Luc’s philosophy is that of a “baton passer”, sharing his knowledge and techniques from generation to generation in the hopes of upholding high quality farming and winemaking.
The vines are located on the north coast of Beaune in the commune of Chorey-Les- Beaune, stretching over 2.5 acres (1 ha) and planted on clay and limestone soils. The vines yield 55 hl/ha, and are trained similarly to peach trees (“rosaceae”) and box trees (“buxacées”) to best preserve local fauna.This domaine uses sustainable agriculture techniques to obtain the highest quality fruit all while respecting the terroir.
Maldant aims to protect his wines from oxidation by utilizing carbon dioxyde instead of over-sulfuring. Cold maceration lasts 12 days, followed by fermentation in temperature controlled tanks. The wines then mature in oak barrels that were previously used on Grand Crus.
Tints of deep purple, aromas of red berries and a fleshy, delicate palate of currants and raspberries.
Perfect with barbecues, fish baked in red sauces, or pizzas.
