Jérôme Castagnier has established himself as one of Burgundy’s most significant emerging talents, winning the prestigious title “Jeunes Talents de Bourgogne” for two consecutive years. Despite his family origins as a winegrower in Morey-Saint-Denis, Jérôme began his career as a musician, even playing the trumpet for the Republican Guard at the Elysée in Paris.
However, the love for his native land and the passion for viticulture prompted him to return to Burgundy in 2004, to take care of the precious family wine heritage together with his father. After the death of his father in 2012, Jérôme took on the task of enhancing the prestigious family crus, including the Clos de Vougeot, the Clos Saint Denis and the Clos de la Roche.
Jérôme Castagnier’s talent is indisputable and, although he is already established in France, we are sure that he will soon join the select group of the biggest producers in Burgundy. His dedication to enhancing the prestigious family vineyards and his ability to create wines of exceptional depth are a clear sign of his commitment and talent. We can’t wait to discover the marvels that Jérôme will reserve for us in the future and to taste his wines, which will undoubtedly bear witness to his extraordinary journey in Burgundian viticulture.

Castagnier’s Clos de Vougeot is a wine that enchants from the first sip. Its intense ruby color catches the eye, while enveloping notes of ripe berries, subtle spices and light floral nuances unfold on the nose. On the palate, this wine presents itself with an impeccable structure, with silky tannins and a pleasant freshness. The flavors of black cherry, blackberry and currant blend with hints of tobacco and undergrowth, creating an unforgettable gustatory harmony. The persistence is remarkable, leaving a pleasant long-lasting sensation on the palate.
Castagnier’s Clos de Vougeot is a highly refined wine that lends itself to multiple gastronomic combinations. Its complex structure and the depth of its flavors make it perfect to accompany high quality meat dishes, such as a grilled fillet of beef or a wild boar roast; it is also an extraordinary meditation wine especially with a few years of aging behind it.
