Jean-Paul Paquet’s family has worked in the Mâcconnais region of Burgundy since his Grandfather settled there in 1955. Jean-Paul’s father was eventually able to purchase a small 7 acre domaine in the heart of Pouilly Fuissé in 1971. Jean-Paul and his wife took over in 1978 and have purchased several additional plots since then. In 2003 when their son Yannick joined the family business, they decided to increase the size of the domaine again and purchased a vineyard outside the Chateau de Chaintré from which they produce Macon-Chaintré and Bourgogone Chardonnay.
The village of Chaintré lies just south of the famous towns of Pouilly and Fuisseé in the Mâcconnias. Here, the rolling hills abut the Soan river and the shale soils are dominated by limestone and clay. This wine is produced from vines averaging 30 years with favorable south-eastern exposure. The vineyard lies just outside the beautiful old Chateau de Chaintré.
