To fully understand Jérôme Castagnier’s “negoce” proposal, it is important to consider some preliminary points. The activity of “négociant” usually involves intermediaries or producers who market large quantities of bottles. In the case of Jérôme Castagnier, on the other hand, the quantities are even lower than the already small ones of his original Domaine Castagnier. This proposal focuses on vineyards of the highest quality, with particular attention to the white wines of the Côte de Beaune and the reds from the prestigious Vosne Romanee area and its historic Crus.
The grapes used do not come from other winegrowers, but are cultivated directly by Jérôme according to biodynamic principles on carefully selected sites and subsequently rented. After manual harvesting, the grapes are vinified in the family cellar in Morey Saint Denis, following the producer’s distinctive and identifying stylistic approach.
When you look at these labels, you will be surprised, but it will be by tasting them that you will be truly conquered. Jérôme Castagnier has created wines that offer a unique experience, reflecting his dedication and unmistakable style.
Pinot noir 100%

Brilliant ruby red colour. On the nose, it opens with a complex and seductive bouquet, with notes of ripe red fruits, exotic spices and a light floral nuance. The palate is enveloped in a silky texture of finely integrated tannins, which give the wine an elegant and harmonious structure. Intense flavors of black cherry, blueberry, licorice and undergrowth blend with vibrant energy and lively freshness. The finish is long, persistent and leaves a pleasant sensation of purity and refinement. Jérôme Castagnier’s Bonnes-Mares is an oenological masterpiece that embodies the excellence of Burgundy and the unique terroir from which it comes.
Jérôme Castagnier’s Bonnes-Mares is a wine of great complexity and structure, which lends itself to refined pairings.
