From: Burgundy, France
Taste: Old vines yield a complex narrative, unfurling notes of acacia and honeysuckle, gradually giving way to a citrusy bliss, promising a wine that ages like fine poetry.
About: Jean-Philippe embodies a rich legacy, representing his family's third generation in winemaking. This remarkable journey began in 1981 when a young Jean-Philippe, fueled by his father's trust and the benevolence of the property owners, embarked on a journey to carve out his very own vineyard. Using the resources provided by the owners, he nurtured his first vintage at the young age of 20, marking the beginning of an era characterized by respect for the vine and the soil it grows in.
By 1984, his aspirations found a home in the acquired buildings at "Vieux Saint Christophe," paving the way to bottle his wines in his own cellars. Despite facing setbacks in 1991, Jean-Philippe’s unwavering resolve and a decade of diligent work helped him secure the trust of two new owners, setting the stage for an exciting chapter centered on the picturesque terrain of Burgundy.
In the new millennium, Jean-Philippe continued to push boundaries. The year 2000 saw him expanding by acquiring an old coaching inn at "le Creux du Coche." Following in 2001 was a series of milestones that saw the restoration of buildings and the grand organization of Saint Vincent Tournante’s festivities, where Jean-Philippe took charge of the cellars, heralding a new era in his winemaking.
He formalized his operations by founding the SARL Jean-Philippe Fichet in 2002, which allowed him to purchase a share of the grapes from the owners. By 2006, his vision had grown to encompass a holistic approach to viticulture, establishing his compost-making facility to maintain the health and quality of his soil. Jean-Philippe’s modernization is characterized by a relentless pursuit of precision, with an unwavering belief that each wine can genuinely reflect its terroir through extreme thoroughness.
