Being an outsider, from the alpine region of Savoie, it must have taken a lot of guts and determination for Jean-Marie to find and secure 1.5 hectares of top quality AO C Bourgogne Chardonnay right in between the ultra famous villages of Meursault and Puligny Montrachet. That was in 2001, first vintage was 2004, and rightly, the cuvee was called “Le Petit Têtu”, translating to “The Little Stubborn Guy”.

Jean-Marie likes to call his vineyard work “gardening”, and the way he works the vines truly is by hand with a great amount of time given to the details. Viticulture is biodynamic and cellar work is meticulous, with natural yeasts, zero entrants, zero SO2, long ageing on fine lees in quality old oak Barrels and Demi-Muids. This is exciting, pure, natural White Burgundy, as is too rarely found.
