Domaine Rapet

France, Burgundy

 
 

Agriculture Raisonnée


Thomas Huber


The Rapet family estate has a history going back almost three centuries. A treasured “tastevin” (wine-taster) dating from 1765, on which the family name appears, is carefully kept from generation to generation. Vincent, the grandson of Robert and son of Roland, along with his wife, Sylvette, are now hard at work managing the estate.

The Rapet holdings comprise 20 hectares of vines in the villages of Pernand-Vergelesses, Savigny les Beaune, Aloxe Corton and Beaune.

Tucked away in the green surroundings of a quiet valley and beginning at the foot of Corton hill, the Pernand-Vergelesses vineyard is located between Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune.
