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.

Straw yellow color with golden reflections, the nose offers a generous and sophisticated bouquet, in which the floral notes blend with the aroma of ripe fruit, while a subtle mineral texture and a delicate hint of smoke emerge. Wood integrates perfectly, even at a young age.
On the palate, this wine is harmonious, with a pleasant freshness and good sapidity. Its dense and enveloping structure captivates the senses. It is an ideal wine to be enjoyed after at least five years of ageing, when it reaches its full expression and develops into a symphony of complex flavours.
The Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru offers a wide variety of food pairings. It marries beautifully with shellfish, sophisticated fish dishes, white meats and hard cheeses. A complex wine that elevates every culinary moment.
