Chevalier Clerget


The Clerget family dates back to 1268. Jean Clerget, Member of the Royal Parliament in Dijon, was appointed “Chevalier” in 1698 and granted a family coat of arms. In 1972, Patrick CLERGET started working for the family company “Maison Raoul CLERGET” in Saint-Aubin. In 1994, he and his wife set up their own company, “Sélection Patrick Clerget”, in Beaune, the capital of Burgundy wines. In 2007, he was appointed a member of “Chevalier du Tastevin”, the exclusive society that promotes Burgundy wines around the world. “Sélection Patrick Clerget” now exports nearly 2 million bottles of the fine wines of France every year to more than 25 countries all over the world.

Domaine Perraud

Domaine Perraud is a great story of a young winemaker encouraged by his parents (who made their living growing grapes for the local co-op) to strike out on his own. So at the age of 24, Jean-Christophe Perraud began making wine from the family's vineyards. In 2005 he produced his first vintage out of 4 hectares of vines. Less than a decade later, Domaine Perraud has 25 hectares of Bourgogne, Mâcon and Saint-Véran vineyards. This Domaine practices sustainable agriculture and is moving to organic.
