Nicolas Rossignol was born in 1974, the 5th generation of his family to be involved in wine. After technical training in Beaune he worked in Volnay, Châteauneuf du Pape, South Africa and Bordeaux before returning to the family estate. In 1997, he purchased 3 hectares spread over Volnay, Pommard, Beaune, Aloxe-Corton and Pernand-Vergelesses. In 1998, he increased his vineyard holdings by another hectare. Today, Nicolas makes wine from his own estate, as well as from his fathers's vineyards (Domaine Familial Rossignol Jeanniard) bottling everything under the name Nicolas Rossignol. His wines have excellent body and rich tannins.
