46 Hectares across Chablis and surrounding areas; Kimmeridgian soils
When the economic and political situation became complicated in french Sudan in the 1950s, Jean Tricon decided to come back home to France. He took this opportunity to buy the Vauroux farm, which, although in Chablis, grew primarily grains. Jean’s sons took over after his death and expanded the activity of the farm by planting their first vines in 1972. (Those vines today are the source for the Vieilles Vignes cuvee). Jean’s grandson, Olivier, grew up in the vineyards and aspired to one day further elevate the family domaine. He prepared for the work by studying viticulture and oenology in Beaune, then working in the vineyards in the Côte de Beaune, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and Madiran. In 1998, Oliver took over the estate, which now comprises 46 ha.
