For seven generations, Domaine Henri Delagrange has had the 2 famous terroirs of the Côte de Beaune in its blood: Volnay and Pommard.
Domaine Henri Delagrange - a family history
Six generations of winemakers have built and shaped the estate over time. Today, the 7th generation takes up the challenge and takes care of this wonderful family history. It all began in 1947 when René Delagrange bottled the entire harvest as "Clos des Chenes". Over the years, new applications were added. When Didier Delagrange took over the domaine from his parents in 2003, he added more vineyards. Meanwhile, 14.5 hectares of the best sites in the AOC Côte de Beaune belong to the estate.
The faces of today, the visions of tomorrow for the Domaine Henri Delagrange
Since 2017, Alexis Delagrange, the eldest son, has been working in the family business. After his studies at the viticultural school of Beaune, the young man started his career at the Jacques Prieur vineyard in Meursault. A journey through the vineyards of the "New World" then led him to the renowned Vriesenhof wineries in South Africa, Bethel Heights in Oregon, Fromm Winery in New Zealand, and Cupitt's Family in Australia. By immersing himself in these different terroirs, the young man discovered a different approach to the most elegant yet delicate of all grape varieties, Pinot Noir. He gained a new perspective on viticulture in all its diversity and complexity. With this inspiring world wine journey and his deep connection to his roots, Alexis brings a new perspective that combines modernity and tradition, progress and respect for the land in a very clever way. But the two younger brothers are also following in the "wine footsteps". Benjamin Delagrange knows the world of wine trade very well. Arthur Delagrange is active in the BTS viti-oeno. What all three men have in common is the same passion for wine and a deep attachment to the family estate.
The philosophy of Domaine Henri Delagrange
"It's time to adapt to nature again and stop just asking it to give us what we want. To do this, we must respect the soil, the plants, life and balance." Alexis Delagrange
This statement reflects the complete philosophy. There is as little intervention in the cycle as possible. The vines are strengthened naturally and vinification also takes longer than in the past to retain as much of the original character of the vines as possible.
Côte de Beaune- Home of Domaine Henri Delagrange
The Côte de Beaune is famous for its legendary wines and is one of the fifth largest wine growing regions in Burgundy. This growing region stretches for almost 20km between Ladoix-Serrigny and the hills of Maranges. Its orientation towards the morning sun is special, which is why the vineyards are never wider than a hundred metres. Famous grape varieties for this growing region are for example
- Pinot Noir, for full-bodied red wines
- or Chardonnay for white wines with aromatic diversity
