Morgan and Julie Truchetet, brother and sister, took over Domaine Truchetet from their father Jean-Pierre in January of 2019. Together, they represent the fifth generation to lead Domaine Truchetet. After receiving his diploma in viticulture and oenology from the lycée viticole in Beaune, Morgan worked at Domaine Lescure, eventually rising to the position of vineyard manager from 2012 to 2018. During this time, his little sister Julie perfected her knowledge of terroirs while working for more than ten years at Domaine Truchetet, alongside Jean-Pierre. So it seems only natural that in 2019 they decided to join forces to take over the Domaine and begin a conversion to organic viticulture. They continue to explore new practices, such as innovative plant and seaweed treatments. Their objective: to give energy back to their soil while bottling the fullest expression of each terroir. It’s an ambitious challenge, but one that Morgan and Julie are more than ready to take on!
The Domaine is moving towards organic certification, having followed organic and some biodynamic practices in recent years and they have begun working their very old Nuits vineyard with a horse to avoid the inevitable damage caused by tractors going between the 100-year-old vines. Out with the old and in with the older! 2019 will be the first full vintage for this new generation of the Truchetet family, having taken over from their father in 2018. taste the results.
