Interesting Fact
This very fine estate is made up of 7 acres of vines surrounding a magnificent house that was the former home of a yon silk manufacturer. Since 1975, when her husband died, Madame Jorcin has been helped by two wine growers, a father and son who work in the vines and take care of the vilification. Georges Duboeuf has been buying the estate’s wine for several decades.
