Introduction : In 2000, Arnaud, their son, educated as an Engineer and following a 10-year career in the construction industry, was captured by tradition: with his wife Hélène, they bought the Château de Melin, located on the town of Auxey-Duresses, and decide to settle the family estate vineyards. The Château de Melin currently operates 22 hectares of vineyards and produces 22 appellations: 20 in the Côtes de Beaune and 2 in the Côtes de Nuits areas. The vinification process still takes place in our winery in Sampigny-les-Maranges. However, the aging and bottling of the wines is accomplished in their cellars at the Château.
