Charlopin-Tissier was created when young Yann Charlopin and his wife Justine Tissier purchased the very popular ‘Domaine David Clark’ in the centre of Morey St-Denis. The couple have taken on the existing vineyards – Bourgogne rouge, Côte de Nuits-Villages, Vosne Romanée and Morey St-Denis – and supplemented these in their first vintage with family holdings including two thrilling Marsannays, both red and white.
Yann’s education came from wine school in Beaune – “we learnt the basics but we essentially just had lots of fun!”
Years spent making wine his father’s way has only strengthened Yann’s determination to find his own path. His great pal, Jean-Marie Fourrier, has been very instrumental in that, advising and encouraging Yann to buy the domaine, along with the more material help of a loan of his bottle-waxing machine! Incidentally, JM went out with Yann’s sister before meeting Vicki – we thought you’d like some additional intrigue!
