Domaine Seguin-Manuel gets a toehold in the Côte de Nuits

Domaine Seguin-Manuel takes over a 1,8-hectare vineyard in Vosne-Romanée « Aux Communes ». Hand harvested on October 3-4, the grapes coming from these old vines are showing a high quality potential.

The estate now covers a total area of 8,5 hectares. Initially located in Savigny-lès-Beaune, Domaine Seguin-Manuel has been farming several new plots in Beaune, Pommard, Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet since its acquisition by Thibaut Marion in 2004. In the process of certification, all the vineyards are organically grown.

« This new plot in Vosne-Romanée makes it possible for us to get a toehold in an iconic village of the Côte de Nuits. It contributes to the control of our supplies of sought-after appellations wines and strengthens the artisan dimension of our winery».

Seguin-Manuel produce 80 000 bottles a year and export 70% of them in some thirty countries.

    Any idea who they bought it from?

      I think ‘takes over’ is not ‘bought’ JT. Probably a fermage agreement – but no, sorry, I don’t know the previous encumbents…

    Strange figures …. They produce 80.000 bottles on 8,5 hectares, so almost 10.000 bottles per hectare??? That means a yield of 75 hl/ha, well above anything allowed for normal Burgundy wine, and even highish for crémant. And totally unbelievable with organic farming methods. So, what’s wrong? Or am I mistaken? There must be some “negoce” element in there surely?

      You are right Roelof – quite a lot of négoce in their total – it is a mix of domaine etc.

      PS Nice picture in Bourgogne Aujourd’hui 😉
