The estate was created in 1929 by Jean-Luc’s grandfather, Robert JOILLOT, a winemaker and plant nursery owner. He married Marthe, the Pommard baker’s daughter.
His son, Georges-Adrien JOILLOT, followed in his footsteps until Georges-Adrien’s sudden death in 1971.
The estate has two main activities – the work in the vineyard and the production of vine plants.
In 1981, Jean-Luc JOILLOT came to live with his mother, Simone JOILLOT, and work the 6 hectares of vineyards.
The new generation
In the 80s and 90s, the estate expanded with the acquisition of the Pommard 1er cru “Les Petits Epenots” and “Les Charmots” parcels. The sale of wine in bottles then developed, with Lydia, Jean-Luc’s wife, working by his side.
In 1999, the new vat room in Rue Marey Monge was built and fitted out.
The new generation had joined the estate, now 14 hectares in size, breathing new life into it.
Simon GOUTARD, his wife’s son, and Jeanne JOILLOT, his daughter, are continuing the tradition and the work.
