Jérôme Castagnier has established himself as one of Burgundy’s most significant emerging talents, winning the prestigious “Jeunes Talents de Bourgogne” title for two consecutive years. Despite his family origins as a winemaker 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, his love for his homeland and his passion for viticulture pushed him to return to Burgundy in 2004, to take care of the family’s precious viticultural heritage together with his father. After his father’s passing in 2012, Jérôme took on the task of enhancing the family’s prestigious crus, including Clos de Vougeot, Clos Saint Denis and Clos de la Roche.
Jérôme Castagnier’s talent is unquestionable and, although he is already established in France, we are sure that he will soon join the small group of the greatest Burgundy producers. 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 wonders that Jérôme has in store for us in the future and to taste his wines, which will undoubtedly be a testimony 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 captures the attention, while the nose opens up with enveloping notes of ripe berries, subtle spices and light floral nuances. 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 wine of great refinement 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 beef fillet or a wild boar roast; it is also an extraordinary meditation wine especially with a few years of aging behind it.
