Domaine La Croix Saint-Jacques

Domaine La Croix Saint-Jacques

Based in the Burgundian town of Joigny, 40 km north of Chablis, with a long and impressive history, the vineyard area totalled 540 hectares in the Middle Ages.

Destroyed completely by phylloxera, the vineyards of Joigny were reborn in 1982 thanks to Michel Lorain with the help of Claude Bourguignon, a soil specialist. Together, they studied the specific terroir of Joigny and managed to restore its credentials.  In 2010 Manuel Janisson, wine and champagne specialist took over.

Today, the estate has 12 hectares of vineyards planted on 45° slopes, mainly with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The wines made here reflect a true taste of the terroir, showcasing flint, minerality and fruity complexity.
