Estate Nicolas BOUDEAU

The winemaker and his estate

Nicolas Boudeau – a passionate winemaker

I was born in the heart of Cognac. I did my viticultural studies at the Lycée de l'Oisellerie in Angoulême, then fell in love with the terroirs of Beaujolais in 1999.

After several years of salaried activities in different areas of the region, I made my 1st wines in 2007 with small vineyard of 4 ha at Jacquets in Odenas. Over the years, I am expanding my plots in Brouilly and Beaujolais-Villages.

Currently my farm consists of 15ha including 11ha in Brouilly, 2ha en Côte de Brouilly and 2ha in Beaujolais-Villages. My work in sustainable farming and traditional wine-makinghelps give wines balance, aromatic power and a nice freshness.

“ Of a formidable and imperturbable calm, he follows his guideline and advances tirelessly. During winemaking, he transmits this tranquility to his wines characterized by a powerful velvetness. “

Michelle Boudeau – Attentive and caring

With a BTS accounting in hand and more than 10 years of experience in the administrative wine world, I join my husband in the way he exploits our 15ha farm operate at all levels.
