Philippe Rossignol established his eponymous domaine in the mid-1970s. At the time, he was only in his twenties, but, as with most families in Burgundy, he enjoyed a deep-rooted history in the vines. Located in the heart of Gevrey-Chambertin, Philippe, now with the help of his son, Sylvain, crafts beautiful expressions of red Burgundy across a range of terroirs. Though they didn’t own any Premier Cru vines until the early 1990s, their wines, regardless of designation, have always been pure, top-quality expressions of place.
Today, the domaine remains small and is entirely worked by hand. They currently own 17 acres throughout Côte de Nuits both outright and en fermage, a long lease agreement (nine years minimum) that comes with the right of automatic renewal. They limit yields and always hand-harvest their crop. In the winery, grapes are entirely destemmed and after a cool fermentation, they are aged in mostly neutral French oak.
