Jean-Philippe Fichet is one of our favorite wine makers in Burgundy. He tends his vines from dusk 'til dawn & one of the early adopters of focus on the lieu-dits of Meursault. He believes in wait to pick at just the right time as some vignerons are leaning towards an earlier harvest. His wines are a true delight. Terroir driven and expressive.
