Domain Wines / Savigny-Les-Beaune

A great lover of Burgundy, Jean-Luc AEGERTER acquired a small wine house in Nuits-Saint-Georges in 1988, with the ambition of participating in the revelation of the great terroirs of Burgundy.
In 1994, he bought the first vines of the Domaine, 1,17ha in one piece on the climat "Les Plateaux" in Nuits-Saint-Georges.
Through hard work, determination and passion, Jean-Luc and his son Paul, have built a Domain anchored in the mythical lands of Burgundy and radiating throughout the world.
Today, Paul AEGERTER is the sole manager of the family estate, and he vinifies and raises nearly 50 hectares of which 14 hectares are owned, covering most of the Burgundian appellations.
