HISTORY OF DOMAINE: Julien Missery was the first in the ancestral line of the Chezeaux family to establish his own vineyards in the region of Nuits St. Georges in 1930. Bernard Chezeaux further developed the family's holdings under the name Domaine Bernard Chezeaux. His son, Jérôme, took over in 1993 upon the untimely death of his father. Growing up, he learned the trade at his father's side and went on to complete his education at the "Lycée Viticole de Beaune" (Beaune School of Viticulture). Jérôme is fully versed in modern techniques. However, he retains an approach to grape growing and winemaking that is very traditional while respecting the environment. Jerome believes the wines should represent the terroir first and foremost.
