The long family tradition that continues at Domaine Parent dates back to the 17th century. The real turning point came in 1787, when Étienne Parent befriended Thomas Jefferson, the future President of the United States. As a good businessman, he became a pioneer in the export of Burgundy wines to America.
Subsequently, almost ten generations have succeeded one another on this very special land in the Côte d'Or, each one contributing its stone to the edifice. In 1803, Claude Parent anchored the estate in Pommard, while in the 20th century Jacques Parent brought a breath of modernity to the property. Today, his daughters Anne and Catherine Parent take great care to carry forward this family heritage, following in their father's footsteps with devotion.
Located in the Pommard appellation in Burgundy, Domaine Parent enjoys an exceptional terroir. Here, old vines over 50 years old meet young vines on complex soils influenced by clay, limestone and marl. This geological richness predisposes Pinot Noir to reveal the finest expression of its power and elegance. To preserve this precious vineyard, Domaine Parent has turned to organic and biodynamic viticulture, and has been certified organic since 2013.
The grapes are harvested exclusively by hand. In the heart of the two-hundred-year-old cellars, the winemaking process aims to express with precision the balance between power and finesse, fruit and structure, and of course the singular essence of each vineyard. The result is wines which, because of their unique character, have a place on gourmet tables alongside the great wines of Burgundy.
