Philippe Jambon

Philippe Jambon

Philippe Jambon, a former sommelier, started producing wine in 1997, and soon after he became a cult figure of natural wine thanks to his strong determination to work "zero zero" both in the vineyards and in the cellar where, since the beginning, has completely excluded the use of sulphites. The vineyards of Philippe and Catherine extend over 4 hectares scattered around the village of Chasselas, department of Saône-et-Loire in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region. On the border between North Beaujolais - terri - torio da gamay on granitic and sandy soils - and Sud Mâconnais - territory for chardonnay on clays and limestone - Philippe produces reds and whites (po - chi) in a strictly artisanal way based on a single requirement - site: healthy and ripe grapes. Phenolic and physiological maturity is essential to vinify whole bunches, work with long macerations and very long refinements (gamay from 2011 and Chardonnay from 2006 still rest in the cellar). The style of the wines, traditional and uncompromising, is not consistent with the conventional standards of the AOC and as a result all vintages are downgraded to simple Vin de France. Wines that win time, pulpy, marked by an authentic specificity, sometimes wild, which can only thrill those who love nature in all its forms
