The Fagot family has been located in the small village of Corpeau since 1860. Just outside Chassagne-Montrachet, it is located near some of the most prestigious vineyards in the Côte de Beaune, so it would be fair to say that wine is in the family’s blood. Jean-Charles is part of the 5th generation of Fagots in the area and the third generation to own vineyard acreage in Chassagne-Montrachet. He took the expected route of attending the Lycée Viticole de Beaune (the region’s prestigious wine school), but also studied percussion and vocals at the nearby Mâcon Conservatory.
Returning to his roots in the mid-1990s, Jean-Charles returned to Corpeau and began taking over the family business from his father. Always one to be independent, however, he founded local restaurant Auberge de Vieux Vigneron in 1998, creating a new facet to the Fagot name. The restaurant has become a fixture of the area, creating a draw for local and international gastronomes alike, who flock there to enjoy Jean-Charles’ take on the regional cuisine of Burgundy.
On his estate vineyards, Jean-Charles employs lutte raisonée, a method of growing in which chemical intervention is employed only when necessary. The wines are vinified traditionally and naturally, utilizing oak foudres and 12-14 month long aging periods in the Fagot cellars.
