    Information about domain Paul & Marie Jacqueson

    Henri Jacqueson (Paul’s father) took over the family land and planted it with vines. Gradually, he expanded the domaine by buying well placed parcels in Mercurey and especially in Rully. Currently, Paul (who joined his father in 1972), his wife Pierrette and their daughter Marie (who took over in 2007) own 12 hectares of well-distributed vines, mainly in Rully, but also in Mercurey (1. 3ha) and Bouzeron (0.8ha). Their soils are mechanically worked (no weed killers) because according to Paul Jacqueson, only slow and repeated ploughing properly maintains the soil. The harvest is entirely manual and the grapes are sorted and destemmed as soon as they arrive at the winery. The red wines, like the whites, are laid for 12 months in oak barrels made by several Burgundy coopers with staves from the Troncay forest and dried for at least two years. The proportion of new barrels is generally 20% for whites and 25% for reds.
