With noteworthy grand and premier cru vineyard holdings in Gevrey-Chambertin and Pommard, ex-fighter pilot Xavier Horiot took over the family winery from his grandfather in 2011. Xavier's family began wine production way back in the 18th century in Chassagne-Montrachet, before the family settled in their current site in Pommard in the mid-1800s. Taking advantage of many old vine plantings, the wines are made from small berries and low yields, producing natural intensity and fine concentration.
