The Modest Merchant
Jane et Sylvain
Burgundy Jane et Sylvain is a tiny winery based in and around the prestigious Cote-de-Nuits village of Gevrey-Chambertin. The charming owners (no prizes for guessing their names) took on the tiny domaine in 1993 having acquired 1.9 hectares of Jane’s family land. The winery “Jane et Sylvain” was officially created in 1999 and since 2003 has been certified organic. They make both village and 1er Cru wines, always using native yeasts and old barriques, while varying the extraction and maceration according to what each vintage brings with the resulting wine an expression of beauty and purity. Presently the domaine covers just over 4.3 hectares.
