Jérôme Galeyrand, unlike other Burgundian vignerons, comes from a family in Loire Valley without winemaking history. After eight years working within the cheese industry, Jérôme became passionate about wine and began working harvests at the legendary Domaine Alain Burguet in Gevrey-Chambertin since 1996. Inspired and driven to start his own label and make his own wine, Jérôme enrolled into the Wine Institute in Beaune.
Jérôme is a calculative, detailed and thoughtful winemaker without the restraints of tradition but references them, and is open to experimentation in his work. The result becomes transparency in the glass to time and place of the terroir. Jérôme’s holdings does not include any premier crus or grand crus and are only based in Gevrey-Chambertin of approximately 5 ha with 70% certified organic and 30% being sustainably farmed. All vineyards are plowed to maintain oxygen levels in the topsoil to promote biodiversity. Harvest is done by hand with intensive selection and sorting to ensure only the right berries are used.
