In 1961, a tenacious eighteen-year-old, Jean-Claude Boisset founded his namesake négociant winery in Nuits-St.-Georges. An artisan Burgundy producer with an audacious, authentic style, the winery is housed in a former Ursulines convent where Winemaker Grégory Patriat strives for authentic wines in which human intervention has been kept to a bare, discreet minimum. Utilizing native yeasts, the wines are concentrated, well-rounded, and naturally expressive of their terroirs. The winery embraces the philosophy devised by the Boisset family of the VINICULTURALIST, where the winemaker is as much engaged in the vineyards as in the cellars, building close partnerships with growers to achieve the highest quality in the vineyards.
The Aloxe-Corton appellation spreads over 294 acres on the Aloxe-Corton town and 21 acres on the Ladoix-Serrigny village, at the beginning of the Côte de Beaune.
The appellation is located at the lower limit of a valley, which goes from the Côte de Beaune to the Hautes-Côtes on the road to La Rochepot and Autun.
Beaune is the wine growing capital of the region and has played an important role in Burgundy history.
The town of Beaune is all about wine and pleasure! A pleasure to the eyes, with the famous Hospices de Beaune buildings…and a pleasure to the senses, with that superb mosaic formed by humans and nature – the vineyards of Beaune.
