Domaine Joseph Roty
Joseph Roty has one of the largest cult followings of any small Burgundy grower and has regularly produced some of the most exquisite wines of the region. The family have been producing wine since the time of Louis XIV, a staggering eleven generations since 1710. It is now run by Joseph’s youngest son Pierre-Jean and particularly noted for the exceptional quality of its Charmes-Chambertin Très Vieilles Vignes, the vines of which are thought to date back to the end of the 19th century. The domaine’s wines are full-coloured and exuberantly fruit driven, with a notable use of oak. Vintage after vintage, the wines of Joseph Roty are amongst the most sought after in all of Burgundy.
