Aurélien Chatagnier created his own domaine in 2002 while he was just in his early 20s. Although he doesn’t come from a winemaking family, he started working the vines in his teens at Domaine Jamet, where he was inspired to learn more about winemaking. After apprenticing under François Villard, he headed out to make his own wine. Starting with just over 1 hectare of rented vines, Aurélien has steadily built up a domaine of almost 10 hectares by purchasing, bartering, and replanting vineyards around the town of St-Pierre-de-Boeuf at the Northern extreme of the Saint Joseph appellation. The vineyards are predominantly granite and extremely steep. His style is lean and pure, showing off the specifics of his terrain. Aurélien farms organically and employs a light touch in the cellar where he favors native yeasts, mostly used oak, limited extraction, and bottles without fining or filtration.
