Collection: Jean-Baptiste Jessiaume

Jean Baptiste comes from a long family tradition intimately involved in wine, dating back over 200 years. Merchants and accountants in the 18th century, the Jessiaumes offered a selection of fine wines from neighboring communes in the southern Côte de Beaune. In 1830 the family acquired important vineyards and parcels around Santenay and they became winemakers outright until 2007, when Jean Baptiste's father and uncle handed over the vines.

Although Jean Baptiste grew up in the world of wine, his love for the sport of soccer prevailed over the vineyards for years. Common sense at some point though brought him back to his roots in Santenay, and at 23 he was awarded Burgundy's Best Young Winemaker of the Year. After a stint as head winemaker for a major domaine in the Côte Chalonnaise, he finally set up his own business in 2019. In 2022, he acquired 12.5 hectares of vineyards in the Pommard, Saint-Aubin, Beaune, Saint-Romain and Bourgogne Hautes appellations -Côtes de Beaune, echoing in its wine selection that of its ancestors 200 years ago.
