Berthet-Bondet

Domain: Berthet-Bondet

Domaine Berthert-Bondet was set up in the mid-1980s and is a relatively young domain for this region. The Berthet-Bondet family don’t come from a winemaking background but rather they were artisans from Oyonnaux. Jean Berthet-Bondet had other ambitions however and chose to study Agronomy at Montpellier. It was here that he met Chantal, his wife. Later on, this desire to work the land led him to landing an apprenticeship and then a job at Château-Chalon while Chantal continued her studies at the agricultural school in Montmorot. Soon Chantal became agricultural engineer under the Regional Department of Agriculture. In 1984 Jean and Chantal bought this domain and carried out their first harvest in 1985. The property boasts a 16th century vaulted cellar. The couple gradually extended the domain: in 1986 they converted an old barn into another cuverie and in 1987 they built another cellar for ageing the wines as well as a new storage and labelling area. In January 2012 Chantal retired from her position in the civil service and concentrated full time on the domain. Jean’s daughter Hélène now also works at the domain. The vineyard spans 15 hectares across the Château-Chalon and Côtes du Jura appellations. The domain produces Savignin, Chardonnay, Trousseau Poulsard and Pinot Noir and has had organic certification since 2013. Fruit forward and fresh, the wines are excellent and have made a very good name for this domain.
