  1. Jean-Claude Bessin
  2. Billaud-Simon
  3. Pascal, Damien et Romain Bouchard
  4. La Chablisienne
  5. Domaine du Chardonnay
  6. Jean Collet
  7. Domaine du Colombier
  8. Jean-Claude Courtault & S+V Michelot
  9. Jean Dauvissat
  10. JP et B Droin
  11. William Fevre
  12. Alain Geoffroy
  13. Corinne et Jean-Pierre Grossot
  14. Lamblin et Fils
  15. Long-Depaquit
  16. Christian Moreau
  17. Louis Moreau
  18. Claire, Laurence et Denis Race
  19. Raveneau
  20. Daniel Seguinot et Filles
  21. Simmonet-Fèbvre
