About Maison Kerlann
Hervé Kerlann is the custodian of one of Burgundy’s most significant properties – the Château de La Borde, former home to generations of the Dukes of Burgundy, and transformed in 1645 for the first President of the Parliament of Dijon. Historically known as the Versailles of Burgundy, it is these magnificent surroundings that provide Kerlann the base for his vigneron-négociant business, seeking out and working with the very best vineyards and winemakers the region has to offer. It is this Château and its coat of arms (dating back to the C17) that grace the labels of his outstanding range.
What makes Kerlann so exciting is his commitment to creating accessible and adventurous Burgundy wines rather than being confined by traditions. While his ‘terroir’ wines are a personal interpretation of a unique soil, grape and vintage (of which the Chablis and Pommard are superb examples), it is his Vins d’Audace (“innovative wines”) where his skill and passion come to the fore. Here Kerlann selects fruit from carefully selected vines that are not (or are no longer) classified AOP, and working both in the vineyard and winery, shows how this fruit can create wines equally as complex and enjoyable as those carrying the names of the illustrious villages of the region. But don’t take our word for it - try the Cuvée H and his flagship Cuvée K and let the wine do the talking.
