Domaine Lucien Jacob, Pernand

Categories: ,

This domaine originally (and famously) specialized in growing cassis and framboise in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune. The prosperity occasioned by this type of farming provided the resources to purchase vineyards in the neighboring villages of Savigny Les Beaune and Pernand Vergelesses. Recently, Jean-Michel Jacob has further expanded the family holdings in the Côte de Beaune to include additional vineyard sites in several 1er Cru vineyards in Beaune. The Jacob domaine now owns nearly 15 hectares of vineyards, 7 of which are planted in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune (in and around the village of Echevronne). In the appellation of Hautes Cotes, the vineyards are planted principally to pinot noir with a single hectare planted to Chardonnay. Important holdings also include: 3.5 hectares of village-designated vineyards in Savigny Les Beaune; 2 hectares in Savigny 1er Cru divided between “Les Vergelesses” and “Les Peuillets”; and, now, the family sharecrops nearly 1 hectare of vineyards in a trio of Beaune 1er Cru vineyards: “Avaux”, “Toussaints” and “Cent Vignes”.
