Jean Baptiste Jessiaume Indent 2022

Winery Background

Since 1830, the Jessiaume family has been deeply rooted in Santenay,in Burgundy.

We are lucky to grow wine in the unique land of Côte deBeaune and Côte Chalonnaise. These exceptional areas of land pushus every day to excel ourselves.The family’s story begins in 1830 with the acquisition of the estateof the Marquis of Saint-Innocent in Santenay.

Successive generations of talented winemakers created theJessiaume Estate, producing vintage after vintage of high-quality wines.The work was then divided between my Uncle Pascal taking care of thevine growing with Marc, my father, in the fermenting room.
