Domaine Michel Arcelain
Pommard - Cote d'Or - Burgundy - France
The Michel Arcelain estate is located in the heart of the Burgundy climates in Pommard in the Côte de Beaune. In 1889, Jules Arcelain took over the family farm and modified the plot during the phylloxera crisis. He replanted the famous grafted grape varieties:
- Pinot Noir
He then passed on his know-how, his knowledge and his land to his son who in turn passed it on to his children.
The plot has therefore evolved over time and over generations.
Today, the estate is operated by Michel and Marie-Madeleine Arcelain's grandson, Pierre and his wife, Charlotte. Pierre began his training with Michel at the age of 10 and completed an internship with esteemed Volnay producer, Frederic Lafarge.
