The Dufouleur family have been merchants since 1610, but it was only a year ago that the new generation represented by Yvan & Yann decided this year to start distributing the family estate wines. Yann sorts out the export markets; Yvan does the winemaking. They are a good team, and the wines are excellent.
The vineyards extend from Fixin to Santenay and include exclusive ownership of Fixin’s "Clos du Chapitre" Premier Cru.
