Jean-Claude and his son Vincent now represent the third and fourth generation of the estate, which began with Jean-Claude’s grandparents in the 1930’s. The Estate is located in a smaller, lesser-known appellation of Cote du Couchois and has developed a great reputation. Truly “for those who know”, only 10% of their wines are exported!
The remaining 90% are sold at the physical winery to visitors.
“Located in the little-known appellation of Côtes du Couchois, adjacent to Meursault, the wines from the Royet are true insider tips. Very quietly they craft sparkling wines and Chardonnays that rival Champagnes and white wines from neighbouring Meursault.”
