Domaine Danjean-Berthoux

Pascal DANJEAN

Pascal bottled the estate’s first vintage in 1993. Since then he increased the domaine’s holdings by planting more and more vines. Today the vineyard is about 12 hectares located mainly in the Givry 1er Cru appellation. Pascal also exploits 0.7 hectares in Mercurey and 1 hectare of Chardonnay.

The vines are farmed conventionally under what might be called “lutte raisonnée”. Grass is kept in a few parcels and soils are sometimes ploughed.

The vinification takes place in concrete neutral tanks with a cold 3 to 4 days pre-fermentation maceration. Reds are 100% destemmed. Ageing takes place in barrels or stainless steel tanks. Finally, the wines are not fined but undergo a light filtration.

“The wines show a very classic, easy to approach style of Pinot Noir. They’re soft and subtle and offer a very nice expression of their terroir of origin.”
