Sommelier's Notes

DOMAINE JEAN FÉRY & FILS is a family-run winery located in the beautiful village of Échevronne between Beaune and Nuits-Saint- Georges. The vineyards span over 14 hectares (34 acres) from the north to the south of Burgundy in famous appellations.


Jean-Louis took over his parents'estate in 1988 and made his childhood dream come true: providing the family estate with the means to develop further by performing the necessary construction work and investments while purchasing new vineyards. He now dedicates all his time to the vineyards. The vineyards are farmed according the principles of organic farming (they have been certified by ECOCERT since 2011), which requires a great deal of dedication and physical labor. Jean-Louis organizes the work of the laborers in every plot of the estate all year long. His unwavering love for Burgundy’s terroirs leads him to constantly acquire new vineyards in order to enrich the estate’s range of growing areas... and to give everyone pleasure...


The estate is now in the hands of Jean-Louis’s sons, Frédéric and Laurent Féry.


DOMAINE JEAN FÉRY & FILS manages vineyards in many different villages in Burgundy, representing a genuine mosaic of climats over a surface of 14 hectares (34 acres).


Origin of the name

The climat (as is said in Burgundy) of “Les Vergelesses” owes its name to its proximity to a road which led from Beaune to Vergy, seat of a powerful lordship; the house of Vergy was one of the oldest noble families of France (VIIth Century) which included noble Counts of Chalon and Mâcon, bishops, and even the wife of a Duke of Burgundy. 


Classification and local place

The climat (or terroir) “Les Vergelesses” is rather vast; while it corresponds to the lieu-dit “Les Basses Vergelesses” in Pernand-Vergelesses, it spreads also into the commune of Savigny-lès-Beaune where there again it produces Premiers Crus (under the AOC Savigny-lès- Beaune 1er Cru “Les Vergelesses”).


Character And Personality

This great wine is characterised by a colour that is rarely very deep but always lively and brilliant. Its nose, very elegant and fine, offers aromas of soft fruits (raspberry, wild strawberry) which, as the wine ages, take on notes of musk. 


Culinary Recommendation: To serve 16 C - 18 C. Good match with food particularly agreeable and easy; with roast beef, shoulder of lamb, a fillet of duck or a nice cheese platter
