Our small size: a strength!
The Mancey Winegrowers are spread over 120 hectares of vines (about ten communes) around Mancey, a few kilometres from Tournus and the Saône. The production of about fifty winegrowers is thus brought together, with a vinification of the Burgundian grape varieties: chardonnay, pinot noir, aligoté and gamay.
A few words about our philosophy:
Our small size is a real asset as it allows us to vinify a large number of small cuvées separately. Thus we claim the names of domaines of winegrowers with large areas of vines with various cultivation techniques (some will plough, others grass their vines, etc.). As a result, we have very varied results, whether it be on the chardonnay, pinot noir or gamay grape varieties, these grape varieties express themselves differently according to these methods and soils. Our job is therefore to highlight these terroirs and skills. It is a work of art that could be compared to haute couture.

The nose is both complex, fruity and spicy, and the palate is round and full of a beautiful persistence.

On the palate, they are fruity, lively and tonic.
Unprecedented: in 2018, Jean-Baptiste Dupré decided to plant white Sauvignon on an 80-acre plot in the village of Royer, which would give rise to the So Différent range of white and sparkling wines under the Saône-et-Loire PGI.
They will reveal all their freshness as an aperitif, with seafood such as mussels, fish, white meats, delicatessen dishes or even with fresh goat cheese.
