Presentation :

Henri Jayer (1922-2006) left his mark on Burgundian viticulture in the second half of the 20th century and was one of its emblematic figures. A winemaker known in America as well as in Asia, his wines are still highly sought after today for their purity, their exquisite finesse, their remarkable ability to magnify the beautiful terroirs of the Burgundy Coast, their aptitude for harmonious aging...

A student of René Engel, who created the first training in oenology at the University of Burgundy in the early 1940s, he acquired the modern knowledge essential to produce great wines with absolute respect for the "good practices" necessary for the valorization of each “climate”, these carefully demarcated plots of vines. With the complicity of Jacky Rigaux, Henri Jayer opens his notebooks of a lifetime dedicated to the love of the land.

The author:

Jacky Rigaux is responsible for “continuing education” at the University of Burgundy. Author of numerous works in the human sciences and on wine-growing terroirs, he promotes two original diplomas: "Wine and Culture" and "Practice of tasting through knowledge of terroirs".
