Derain Dominique

A pioneer of organic and biodynamic viticulture in Burgundy since the 1990s, Dominique Derain has been based in Saint-Aubin in the Côte de Beaune since 1988. A free spirit and full of verve, a follower of wines where authenticity and pleasure are one and the same, he offers frank and lively wines from Saint-Aubin, Gevrey-Chambertin, Pommard and Mercurey, where the winegrower's sole principle is to accompany the expression of the terroir.

A pioneer of organic and biodynamic viticulture in Burgundy since the 1990s - along with a handful of other Côte de Beaune winemakers such as Didier Montchovet, Jean-Claude Rateau and Emmanuel Giboulot - Dominique Derain has been based in Saint-Aubin since 1988, a small village on the fringes (in every sense of the word) of the prestigious neighbouring appellations, Puligny and Chassagne-Montrachet. There are some very beautiful terroirs here, which only ask to be magnified by a culture respectful of the life of the soil and the vine and by vinifications without corrective interventions (possibly, if necessary, a little rock sulphur at the bottling): such is the approach of Dominique Derain, free spirit and full of verve, adept of wines where authenticity and pleasure are one. The 6 ha of his estate are spread over Saint-Aubin in the first place, in white and in red, but also Gevrey-Chambertin, Pommard and Mercurey. These are free and lively wines, where the winemaker's only principle is to accompany the expression of the terroir. In 2017, he handed over his estate to Julien Altaber, who had worked alongside him since 2002: continuity is assured.
