The Domain: Run by brothers, Pierre-Yves and Olivier, Domaine Fichet has raised the quality level of their wines in recent years by investing in a new modern winery.

The terroir here is unique, high content of white limestone in the chalk and clay. The microclimate brings extra humidity and morning fog. Now with a new winery and a general willingness to modernize their approach, the brothers' wines have continued to improve year after year. 

Francis Fichet was one of the first to plant Pinot Noir in the highly Chardonnay dominant region. His original plantings are now over 30 years old and are blended with Pinot that Pierre-Yves planted in 1994 et 1995. Domaine Fichet today has 35 ha of vineyards, including 26 ha of Chardonnay.
