Domaine Jacqueson

Domaine Jacqueson is one of the very best domaines of the Côte Chalonnaise and is admired by peers throughout Burgundy.

It is a shining example of why it is better to buy a top wine from a lesser village than an inferior wine from a top village. The domaine extends to 18 ha of well-sited, carefully tended vineyards: 11 ha in Rully; 6 ha in Mercurey and 1 ha in Bouzeron. The percentage of low-yielding very old vines is high and they follow strictly sustainable lutte raisonnée methods with the minimal use of synthetic products. Pierre Jacqueson left teaching in 2015 to join his sister, Marie, who had been working alongside her father Paul for many years. Paul is still around and takes a particular interest in the barrels, visiting the oak forests each year to select their own oak staves which are then weathered at his favourite cooperage. When we used to visit, it was Paul’s father, Henri, in the background. He had founded the estate in 1946 and worked hard to re-establish the name of Rully which had been better known before many of its wine growers were lost in the trenches during the Great War. Henri was the first in Rully to concentrate on the quality of the fruit with the all-important reduction of yields, which remains very much a feature of Jacqueson wines today.

Vintage guide

A warm season but with cooler nights, 2022 looks to have brought both excellent quality and, importantly, a decent quantity. The 2021 vintage was heavily affected by frost meaning quantities are well down though the quality is very good. 2020 was historically early and regarded as a great vintage. 2019 is a worthy successor to the excellent ‘18s, where low yields have given very concentrated wines. A seriously good vintage here in 2018 as the region escaped the frosts which have plagued recent years. They have a good crop of rich, aromatic whites across the region as a result. Despite a familiar and now all-too-frequent late frost in 2017 the growers in the Côte d’Or were better prepared and the vintage has delivered excellent results, with many domaines back to ‘normal’ yields. In the Mâconnais and Chablis growers were not quite so lucky with yields down for the second year but wines of excellent quality. What there is in 2016 is very good but sadly frost and hail had a bigger than usual impact this year, particularly in Chablis and the Mâconnais, but almost no-one escaped unscathed. 2015 produced round, full whites with good, ripe fruit. 2014 started well enough with an early spring but a cooler than average summer, and hailstorms in the south, reduced yields. The resultant wines, however, have elegance and beautiful balance. A cold season in 2013 meant yields were low but good growers have produced some very drinkable wines.
