Domaine Henri Jayer
Henri Jayer began producing wines under his label in the 1950s from a 7.4-acre inheritance. He is now credited with introducing many of the "important modern" innovations of Burgundian winemaking. A staunch advocate of the premise that great wines start in the vineyard he opposed the use of chemical controls for vineyard pests and soil enhancement and promoted more of a sustainable agriculture theory. His minimalist approach produced wines of undisguised purity and maximum expression of the unique characteristics of each of his vineyards.
