This story begins in 1945 when Joannes Duroussay returned home after being held prisoner in Germany for four years. At that point there was no Domaine, just a small farm with a few cows and goats and some Chardonnay and Gamay vines. He started to make a little wine for himself while working for a local merchant. He also made a little extra cash performing as a saxophonist, going from ball to ball in different villages with his little band. Little by little, Grandpère Duroussay expanded the winegrowing portion of the farm, eventually handing the management of 7 hectares to his son, Jean-Luc. In 1985 Jean-Luc established Domaine Côteaux des Margots, now a third-generation family-owned wine estate. The Domaine is perfectly nestled in the Mâcon hills of Southern Burgundy and has grown to 15 hectares of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Gamay farmed by Jean-Luc and Veronique Duroussay and their son Pierre. The vineyards are certified "Haute Valeur Environnementale" due to their environmentally friendly farming practices, and are currently working to taking the winery 100% organic, while staying focused on the top priority—quality.

100% Pinot Noir, sourced from 30-year-old vines, located in the village of Pierreclos, in Burgundy’s Mâconnais region. The fruit was hand-picked and macerated for ten days in concrete tanks with native yeast and zero sulfur. It was gently pressed and then aged on fine lees, 80% in neutral oak barrels for 9 months before bottling with minimal SO2.

Crimson robe. Lovely aromas of red cherry, rhubarb and savory herbs. The palate shows tart red fruit: cherry, red currant, wild strawberry, and a delicate earthiness. Youthful, grippy tannins set against a solid acid core; charming and precocious, this bottling is a remarkable value with great aging potential.
