Domaine Hughes Beguet

Domaine Hughes Beguet

The Hughes Beguet winery is located a Mesnay, a small village adjacent to Arbois in the remote Planches-près-Arbois. He was born in 2009, when Patrice Béguet, winemaker, renounced the city life of Paris and returned to the United Kingdom with his wife, Caroline Hughes. They purchased 4.5 hectares of vineyards in the Arbois appellation at over 300 meters above sea level, including one of the most coveted slopes of Arbois, Les Corvées. Patrice works his vineyards in a biodynamic way, and among the vineyards of Savagnin and Ploussard he has sown wild flowers, legumes and cereal plants. So believing in this lifestyle that his vin de paille is wrapped in biodynamic straw, and an ancient breed of alpine sheep graze on native grasses among vines in winter. In the cellar the wines are fermented only with indigenous yeasts present on the grapes, they contain a very low dose of sulfur; but it is by going up into the "cave" that one can experiment to have all unique wines, and refinements among old steel vessels of aged oak.
