Vigneron Didier Delagrange represents the 6th generation to oversee his family’s eponymous domaine in Volnay. After completing his formal studies at the Lycée Viticole (Beaune) in 1990, Didier worked along side his father in both the cellar and vineyards for the better part of a decade before formally taking over in 2003. He currently farms just under 11 hectares of choice vineyards in Volnay, Pommard, Aloxe-Corton, Meursault and Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Beaune.
In the vineyard, Didier utilizes only organic vine and soil preparations, and encourages soil and vine health by plowing between rows. All harvesting is done by by hand, in order to ensure and preserve the best quality fruit. From the approachable and expressive Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Beaune to the regal Volnay Clos des Chenes 1er Cru, the Delagrange commitment to producing the most accurate expression of terroir for each vineyard is evident in every bottle.
