Domaine du Beauregard
Domaine du Beauregard is located in Saint Sernin du Plain, a few kilometers from Beaune in the sub-region Côte Châlonnaise. The estate was founded in 1810 and as of recently was passed down from Michel and Françoise Dépernon to their son, currently in its sixth generation, Jérôme. While Jérôme assumes the responsibility of the estate his parents remain involved for advice and counsel. With 15 hectares under vine, 2/3 of the production is dedicated to Pinot Noir and 1/3 to Chardonnay and a little Aligoté. They farm sustainably according to lutte raisonnée principles. The average vine age for Pinot Noir is 50 years old and 30 years old for the Chardonnay. The estate produces seven still wines and three crémants, which are estate bottled.
