A true family enterprise, brothers Philippe and Christophe Jomain, along with sister Catherine, launched this Chardonnay focused Côte de Beaune domaine in 1992 with vineyards left to them by their father, Marc. With precious parcels in four of Puligny’s premier crus and 0.35 ha of hallowed ground in the Grand Cru Bâtard-Montrachet, Domaine Jomain consistently produces a line of classically elegant white Burgundies.


The Jomain boys tend all of their vineyards meticulously by hand with careful eco-sound practices, including bio-alternative vine and soil treatments in lieu of chemicals whenever possible. Harvest is of course, also manual. From vineyard to the cellar, gentle handling of their Chardonnay fruit is of paramount importance. In the cellar, Christophe takes every measure to ensure that the individual character of each terroir is fully expressed by avoiding manipulative technological tricks and excessive use of new oak. Christophe and Philippe do like the texture-enhancing effects of extended lees contact with bâtonnage (stirring), but never use more than 25% new barrels during the élevage of their wines.
