Jean-Claude Boisset


Jean-Claude Boisset set up operations in Nuits-Saint-Georges, in the former Ursulines convent. Here, in this solid building built from burgundian stone, the Ursulines - nuns who were forced to flee from the Revolution - left something of their own spirit behind. In its large walled garden, between the rows of apple trees, pruned yews and boxwood and other fruit trees, you can still almost hear their murmurs in the silence.

In the labyrinthine cellars, as well as in Mother Superior's lodgings - with their watchful view over the Côte and close proximity to the Premiers Crus - the sense of peace and serenity is palpable. This place, imbued with prayers, calm, and - as is often the case here - a sense of intangible mystery, has now become our 'home'.
