Notes from the producer: 

"Paul, Pierre and now Jean-Baptiste, three generations have succeeded each other at the Pierre and Jean-Baptiste LEBREUIL estate since 1935.

Initially, Paul owned a few ouvrées of vines (1 ouvrée = 428 M² or almost 24 ouvrées for 1 hectare, old measure in Côte d'Or still used), sales in bottles were very rare, mainly from the sale in bulk to trading; moreover, like many winegrowers, he practiced polyculture (breeding, agricultural land).

In 1958, his son Pierre stopped his studies to come and work on the family estate. He took classes in pruning, grafting, soil maintenance at the Beaune viticulture school and also oenology classes at the Burgundy oenological station. The estate is still small and is changing very slightly. In addition, Pierre Lebreuil works with other winegrowers in the village to finance the estate.

After military service, in 1965, Pierre married Odile Charlot whose grandfather was a winegrower in Chambolle Musigny but whose vines had all been sold to finance the purchase of a tobacco bar!

Pierre and Odile devoted themselves entirely to the estate and it entered a phase of transition and development: purchase of a farm building and vines. The area of ​​the estate reaches 7 hectares. But above all, Pierre Lebreuil buys equipment for bottling because he intends to increase the sale of bottles. Thanks to numerous door-to-door sales in France and Europe, sales of bottles are developing very markedly.

In 1999, Jean-Baptiste Lebreuil came to work on the farm and took the necessary steps to settle down with his parents. Previously, he obtained a diploma of Technico Commercial in Wines and Spirits at the Lycée Viticole de Beaune. In addition, to increase his knowledge, he did many internships in France (Bordeaux) but also abroad (Argentina, Australia). He also obtains his wine and spirits broker card.

His studies and his experiences enabled him to acquire a good training in oenology (vinification, breeding), in wine production hygiene (which is essential in the production of quality wines) and in marketing. In September 2001, the Pierre Lebreuil estate changed status and became the Pierre et Jean-Baptiste Lebreuil company. It operates 10.5 hectares of vines in the villages of Savigny-lès-Beaune and Aloxe-Corton in regional, village and 1er cru red and white appellations.

In 2007, operations continued to expand. The estate now operates a plot in the village of Volnay and another in the village of Pommard. It is the red Ladoix-Serrigny appellation that enriches the range of wines from the estate from the 2009 vintage. The estate now has 13 hectares of vines."
