Domaine Charlopin-Tissier is a rare find. The young domaine which just got its start in 2013 with only 1.08 hectares of vines is the child of husband and wife Yann Charlopin and Justine Tissier. The young couple now hold just over 4 hectares of vines in Bourgogne, Côte de Nuits-Villages, Marsannay, Gevrey Chambertin, Morey-Saint-Denis, Vosne Romanée, and Pernand-Vergelesses. Inspired by the elegant wines of his mentor Jean-Marie Fourrier, the wines of Domaine Charlopin Tissier are pure wines of elegance and finesse. This is the Burgundy we have been searching for since 2013.
After studying wine in Beaune and spending time making wine in Tasmania, Sancerre and Chablis, Yann Charlopin returned home to work alongside his father, the famous winemaker Philippe Charlopin. When the opportunity arose to acquire some of Justine’s family’s vines in Marsannay and with a clear vision of the wines he would like to create, Yann could not pass up the opportunity to venture out on his own. With the encouragement of Jean-Marie Fourrier, Yann and Justine soon purchased Domaine David Clarke in Morey-Saint-Denis.
In the vineyard, all farming is organic and done by hand. Once harvested, all grapes are fully de-stemmed, undergo a cold maceration and are fermented with natural yeasts. Yann does little racking as he prefers a long, slow élevage on the fine lees.
