ESTATE HISTORY

Jean-Luc and Paul Aegerter
The Aegerters, a father and son team, are creators and developers. They did not inherit an estate; they built it together, each contributing his own knowledge and aspirations.
United by the same passion for nature in general and vines in particular, Jean-Luc the pioneer and Paul the visionary freely chose this profession.
They began a shared story, developed their knowledge and allowed their ideas to mature. Paul, now the sole head of the family company, is continuing this family adventure and starting a new chapter: one about a flourishing business.

TERROIR

Clay and limestone

On the Côte de Beaune, the Pommard is renowned for its power of its red wines only. The first growth vines are planted in the middle and at the top of the hillsides on clay-limestone soils.
Les Saussilles is located at the extreme east of Pommard next to the Beaune parcels on a very wet soil where willows could grow.

VITICULTURE 

Sustainable farming. Respect for the vine and its environment thanks to demanding specifications. The Domaine is converting to certified organic farming.

WINEMAKING

During the harvest the grapes are cut and sorted by hand, then destemmed and placed between 2 and 4 days in stainless steel vats for pre-fermentation maceration. The vinification is done in vats.
Ageing: In oak barrels (30% new barrels, some of which come from Radoux cooperage) will soften and caramelize the wine.

TASTING AND FOOD PAIRINGS

A dark colour with dense reflections. A nose of candied black fruits such as burlat cherry.
In the mouth more power provided by the structure.
Best paired with entrecôte Charolaise, head of veal with gribiche sauce.

Served between 14C° et 16°C
Ageing potential: 10 years, and more
