The Ragot family have traced their wine growing history back to 1760 when Gabriel Ragot tended vines in Mercurey. About a century later, Louis Ragot established a property in Givry. There he not only grew grapes, but also a number of different crops, as well as raising livestock.

Two centuries after the Ragot family began their winemaking, they chose to abandon their other sources of income and focus solely on their 5 hectares of grapes. By 1973, all the production on the property, which had grown to 7 hectares, was sold in bottle around France. The name of the domaine changed from Ragot Frères to Domaine Ragot and was run by cousins Jean-Paul and Jean-Pierre Ragot.

After Jean-Pierre's death in 1991, Jean-Paul's son Nicolas entered the business in 2002. Large investments were made in the winery and vineyards over the next year, with new tanks and an underground barrel room constructed and certain non-productive parcels replanted. Jean-Paul retired in 2008, leaving Nicolas in sole control of the domaine. Of course, retirement doesn't mean much to a French farmer, and Jean-Paul can still often be found in the vines or the cave. ​

Vineyards

This wine comes from a total of 1.25 hectares of Pinot Noir vines (average age: 50 years) grown on clay and limestone soils.

Vinification

Aging is in oak barrels, 20% of which is new, for 12 months.

Tasting Notes

The wine has notes of black fruits, cassis, blackberry, and raspberry along with some vanilla and spice. A nice match for grilled steaks, pork roast or chicken stew, or hard cheeses like aged gouda or parmesan.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
