DOMAIN Edouard Lepesme
Welcome to the Domaine de Edouard LepesmeEdouard Lepesme first underwent technical training in viticulture and oenology in Beaune. He then trained with a few winegrowers, starting with Chablis with Thomas Pico and then with Alice and Olivier De Moor. Then in New Zealand with Rudi Bauer but also with Claire Naudin in Côte de Nuits.
In 2014 he bought the "Dessus Bon-Boire" estate. Created in the 1960s by Antoine Donat who replanted vines on the slopes of Vaux and then passed on to his son André who converted the vineyard to organic in the 1990s and with whom Édouard worked for a year before taking over.
Today this 13.5 ha estate bears his name, situated at the gates of Auxerre in the hamlet of Vaux, on the slopes overlooking the Yonne valley, a magical place in spring where vine buds and cherry blossoms mingle.
