Domaine Saumaize-Michelin

A domaine where respect for the environment and attention to detail are paramount


Roger and Christine Saumaize (née Michelin) have meticulously made every effort to put everything in place to achieve the full potential of their vineyards. The vines have been bio-dynamically farmed since 2005, vineyard work is primarily manual, and great importance is attached to the maintenance of bacterial life and the management of flora and micro flora diversity. Mastery of these elements in the vineyard is key to obtaining quality grapes and produce wines that accurately represent the Mâconnais terroir. The 9.50 hectare estate is located in Vergisson and has limestone, trias rock and marl terroirs. Each vineyard parcel has a unique biodiversity.


As a child Roger Saumaize quickly gained awareness and respect for nature and the environment, principles that still guide him today. He works like an artist when he crafts his exceptional wines, letting himself be guided by emotions, observations and intuition. The harvest is manual and the pressing is done very delicately. Yields are controlled, the phenolic maturity is very precise, and each terroir perfectly expresses itself. The estate is now recognized as one of Burgundy’s great white wine producers. Roger’s and Christine’s passion is reflected in their wines.
