The late, great Henri Jayer died during the 2006 harvest but his influence and principles live on with those in Burgundy who saw how he worked and learnt so much from him. Undoubtedly, he is also revered among wine lovers who have his wines in their cellars. For decades he managed the estates of others as well as his own vineyards. He studied oenology in Dijon and particularly appreciated the chance to taste wines other than from Burgundy, thus enhancing his overall knowledge of wine making. From the beginning, Henri Jayer had great respect for the soil and for the grapes, his raw material, preferring 'selection massale' to clones, as then he could produce small berries with resistant skins. He loved old vines, if possible with an average of 50 years, and this enabled him to limit production without recourse to green harvesting. An enemy of any form of 'greenness', he always destalked and was an early supporter of sorting tables. He picked very ripe and used natural yeasts. Cold macerations before fermentation and new Troncais oak barrels were a rule of thumb, always marrying modernity with tradition. We certainly owe much to Henri Jayer, particularly the 'discovery' of Cros Parantoux, which was lying fallow, requiring him to clear it of rocks with a wheelbarrow! To appreciate the great wines of Henri Jayer at their best, remember that they normally have a good deal of sediment, so rest them well after any movement.

This is a great collection of Jayer wines, and the owner of this cellar rightly says that Henri Jayer always needed personally to connect with someone before offering them his bottles, no matter how rich or "important" the client appeared. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
