Domaine Billard has approximately 12.5 hectares of vineyards in different appellations throughout the Côtes de Beaune. Their largest holdings are in the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune with other small plots located in Saint-Romain, Saint-Aubin 1er Cru, Auxey-Duresses and Beaune. The domaine passed from father to son recently and Jérôme Billard has brought a new philosophy to his family domaine. Farming is done with respect for nature and follows the principles of organic farming. Yields are kept low through the use of cover crops and severe pruning and all the vines are harvested by hand. Only indigenous yeasts are used for the fermentation. Jérôme’s father sold his wine to the local cooperative but Jérôme is now estate bottling his entire production.
