stablished in 1984 with a modest parcel, Philippe expanded his domaine, drawing expertise from working with Comte de Vogüé. His dedication to richness and concentration led to inherited and gifted vines, supplemented by strategic acquisitions. All wines, matured in 17th-century cellars, age in carefully selected French oak barrels. The proportion of new barrels varies across wines. Notably, Marsannay Rosé uniquely ages in stainless steel tanks until bottling. Philippe's journey intertwines heritage, craftsmanship, and a commitment to quality winemaking in every bottle.

Domaine des Rouges Queues, established by Jean-Yves & Isabelle Vantey in 1998, boasts 6 hectares across prestigious Burgundian appellations in the southern Côte de Beaune. Embracing biodynamics since 2008, this domaine, nestled in the Maranges hills, meticulously tends to its vines with utmost respect – employing horse plowing and eschewing chemical insecticides and herbicides. Their artisanal approach, evident both in the vineyard and the cellar, emphasizes finesse. Hand-harvesting is a given, and natural fermentation, with indigenous yeasts, unfolds. Minimal filtration and occasional sulfur use preserve the wine's integrity. The approximately 10-month aging in multi-vintage barrels leaves a subtle imprint, resulting in wines that are refined and elegant, exemplifying the precision and a touch of wildness characteristic of high-altitude appellations.
