Maison Albert Sounit is located in Rully and Buxy, where it produces Crémant de Bourgogne and white and red wines from the Côte Chalonnaise.
The property has a long history dating back to 1781 when the Jeunet family founded the company. The current site was built in 1851 by the Jeunet family in a quarry and includes large vaulted cellars, ideal for aging wines.
In 1988 Knud Kjellerup, a Danish wine importer, started importing Albert Sounit's wines and in 1993 he bought the company together with two good friends to realize his dream of producing high quality wines. Together they are huge believers in the potential of the Côte Chalonnaise vineyards. They are convinced of the quality of the terroir and that the care of the vines and the use of the best possible methods, both in the vineyard and in the cellar, can lead to wines of the same quality level as the Côte de Beaune.
Since then the Maison has undergone great development with huge investments in the cellar, vineyards and staff, including the acquisition of Domaine Bernollin in 2005. Today it is a large estate of 16.5 hectares, with vineyards in Rully and Montagny.
From 2019 it was decided to implement organic work in all vineyards. The harvest is done by hand and the winemaking philosophy aims to express the terroir in compliance with the specifics of the vintage. The wines are bottled without filtration.
