Aubert de Villaine

Aubert de Villaine

Domaine de Villaine is located in Bouzeron, nestled in the Côte Chalonnaise region between Chassagne-Montrachet and Santenay to the north and Rully and Mercurey. Planted with vines by the monks of Cluny in the Middle Ages, this small, sunny valley has a rich and lengthy tradition of producing quality wines which reflect their exceptional terroir.


Since 1974, Aubert de Villaine took charge of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, one of the World's most sought-after wineries. He later set up home in the village of Bouzeron and began to put together a private domaine with his wife. The Domaine began conversion to organic farming in 1986, becoming certified in 1997. The famous winemaker joined hand with his nephew, Pierre de Benoist, to rediscover the identity of the Côte Chalonnaise and Bouzeron, as well as the Aligoté grape in its original golden form.
