Jean-Charles Boisset was born into the world of wine in the village of
Vougeot, Burgundy, France. His lifelong passion for wine began as a child,
growing up above the cellars and within view of the centuries-old vineyards
of Château du Clos Vougeot, the epicenter and birthplace of Pinot Noir and
Chardonnay. His parents, Jean-Claude and Claudine, founded the family
winery in 1961 with an innovative and entrepreneurial spirit in one of the
most traditional winegrowing regions in the world. Today, the family
collection includes wineries that share more than 18 centuries of combined
winemaking heritage and tradition in some of the world's most prestigious
terroirs, from Burgundy to the South of France to California's Napa Valley
and Russian River Valley.
