The Jaffelin estate presses its grapes in a vertical wine-press; a rare, traditional technique using handmade vats. This allows for 'hand sewn wines coming from small villages as Rully, Santenay, Monthélie, Fixin but also best known villages such as Beaune, Gevrey-Chambertin, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Chambolle Musigny. The quality of wine produced is consistently impressive.
