The wine-making business was established by Paul Lebreuil in 1935 when he purchased two hectares of vines in Savigny-les-Beaune. His son, Pierre, enlarged the estate to seven hectares. Jean-Baptiste, the third-generation winemaker, joined his father in 1999 after apprenticeships in Bordeaux and Australia, and a degree from the Lycée Viticole in Beaune. With his knowledge and experience, he quickly made technical improvements in the cellars to ensure perfect cellar hygiene. The Lebreuil family aims to produce vividly fruity Savigny-les-Beaune wines with great finesse and soft tannins. The estate was certified “environmentally-friendly” in December 2008.
