Domaine Petitot; A Perfect Marriage

When we talk about wine we often find ourselves talking about relationships; between a variety and the soil it’s planted in, between a slope and its angle to the sun, or between vignerons and their family traditions. In the case of the Domaine of Natalie and Hervé Petitot, the key relationship is between a husband and wife who work together seamlessly to produce beautiful, vibrant Burgundies. Hervé takes the lead in the vines, while Natalie, who like Hervé is a trained oenologist, manages the cellar. But the Petitots seem to balance each other in life as well. While both of them are warm, friendly people, Hervé’s drier more reserved sense of humor is a perfect counterpoint to Natalie’s vivacious and outgoing personality. This yin and yang carries through into their wines which are a fantastic blend of classic delicacy, and powerful fruit expression.
