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

The region basked under the summer sun in 2022, and thanks to cool nights the wines have avoided excess alcohol while retaining elegance, it all looks very promising. The 2021 vintage was severely affected by frost in the spring which means yields are historically low, the wines are fresh and juicy. 2020 was one of the earliest vintages on record following a warm summer but the wines have an appealing freshness too, like a combination of the previous two vintages. There was an absence of frost in 2019 but yields were still restricted, this time by drought, the resulting wines have great richness and concentration. A very good vintage in 2018 with no frosts in the early part of the season though rain in the first half of summer caused some disease pressure. Hail affected Nuits St-Georges and the Hautes-Côtes reducing yields. The resulting wines are rich and concentrated. Quantities in 2017 will be better than 2016 with equally good results. They are more red fruited than black, showing great elegance. 2016 proved a rollercoaster of a season with everything thrown at the growers in the early season but what fruit survived through to harvest is very good. Quantities, however, are small. 2015 is a memorable vintage for red Burgundy, certainly on the rich side. The red wines of 2014 are more ‘classic’, have a great combination of red and black fruits as well as being charmingly approachable in their youth. After a late start and a cool summer, a dry September saved the day in 2013, the Pinot being light but very pure.
