Jules is Pascal Maillard's son, and this is a wine that reflects both the heritage of the terroir and the impact of the new generation. More info

Jules represents the 12th generation of the Maillard family and, at the age of 13, he convinced his father to replant some Beaune vines with Chardonnay, going against the Pinot Noir tradition started by his great-grandfather. On 17th March 2016, it was decided – the vines were to be replanted in white. This cuvée is simply marvellous, a veritable bouquet of white flowers, with exceptional aromatic expression and length on the palate. The signature elements of the terroir come together with the mark of the new generation. In the vineyard, the Maillard family works in an environmentally-friendly way, minimising the use of any treatments on the vines. Work follows the lunar calendar and efforts are made to space the plants out. After manual harvesting, only the best bunches are selected for producing the Jules cuvée.

Beaune Cuvée Jules Maillard et Fils (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Carpaccio de thon, Aiguillettes de poulet, Civet de homard.

Information about domain Maillard et Fils

The Maillard family has been part of Burgundy’s viticultural scene since 1766. In 1952, Daniel Maillard, father to Pascal, decided to dedicate himself to this career, concentrating on enlarging the domain and growing cuvées in a way that respects the terroir and the soil. The domain has gone from 2 hectares to 19, shared across the areas of Aloxe-Corton, Pommard, Beaune, Ladoix-Serrigny, Chorey-les-Beaune, Meursault, Volnay, and Savigny-les-Beaune. In the vines and the winery alike, the methods are traditional, and all the cuvées are classed as grand cru in the regional appellation. They are worked meticulously, from the selection of the grapes to the vinification and the maturation in 228-litre oak barrels. If, one day, you have a chance to visit, don’t miss out on going down into the cellar where a magnificent well serves as a tasting table. Overall, this one is a Burgundian bright spark still at pleasing prices.
