With roots reaching back to 1765, Domaine Rapet Père et Fils is a custodian of winemaking heritage. The family name proudly appears on a wine taster's record from that era, a cherished testament to their enduring dedication.

From Robert to Roland and now Vincent and Sylvette, the estate's stewardship passes through generations. Each era brings a fresh perspective and commitment to the legacy.

Domaine Rapet Père et Fils encompasses 20 hectares of vineyards across Pernand-Vergelesses, Savigny les Beaune, Aloxe Corton, and Beaune. Nestled between Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune, Pernand-Vergelesses is a hidden gem, cradled in a serene valley at Corton hill's base.

The Wine

At Domaine Rapet Père et Fils, the journey begins with unwavering vineyard care. Recent investments, like a new tractor for mechanised soil work, align with Burgundian traditions of vineyard cultivation. The estate's meticulous vine care prioritises disease and pest control based on climatic conditions, minimizing treatments. Each vine receives careful attention, from disbudding and tying to leaf-stripping for maximum sunlight absorption.

For white wines, Chardonnay grapes take centre stage. They are carefully harvested, preserved in small boxes, and gently pressed in a pneumatic press for integrity. Fermentation takes place in barrels, with 30% new oak, and ageing continues on lees with stirring before bottling after a year. Red wines, crafted from Pinot Noir grapes, aim for rich, fruity profiles. Harvested in small boxes, grapes undergo meticulous sorting and gentle transfer to tanks. Fermentation lasts 15 days with regular punch-downs. Ageing occurs in barrels, with 20% new oak. Drawing off the wine eliminates the need for pumps, preserving richness.
