The family of Jacques Cacheux were grape-growers in Vosne-Romanée until the 1950s when Jacques transitioned the estate into producing and bottling their own wines. After he retired in 1994, his son Patrice took over as the fourth generation member of the family working at the estate. Seven hectares spreads over 11 appellations with prime holdings in the Grand Cru of Echezeaux and some exquisite Vosne-Romanée Premier Cru sites. Patrice is also one of the three owners of the Croix Rameau, the tiny 1er Cru (0.60ha) that is just shy of being included in La Romanée St Vivant Grand Cru.
Patrice has made changes in the vineyard and the cellar including moving towards biodynamic agriculture by abstaining from herbicides, insecticides or anti-rot applications. In the cellar the grapes are completely de-stemmed and crushed with a seven-day cold maceration before natural yeasts initiate the primary fermentation. The Premier and Grand Crus are aged in 100% new oak and then bottled without fining or filtration.
