Domaine Arnaud Tessier
Domaine Arnaud Tessier is located in the center of the beautiful, historic village of Meursault, Burgundy. The village of Meursault is famed for the high quality production of Chardonnay and the complexity and diversity of its terroirs*.
The Domaine is under the guidance of Arnaud Tessier. Arnaud was born in Meursault and grew up exploring the village. He began working in the vineyard alongside his father at the tender age of 14. The epitome of a hard worker, Arnaud is also considered amongst fellow villagers to have a rare gift for wine making.
Arnaud began the story of Tessier wines by starting to bottle a tiny part of the Domaine’s production in 2007. Before that, the entire production was sold to the Burgundy “Négoce” – wine merchants who buy grapes to make wine under their own label. With this tiny first vintage and the support from his partner, Catherine (who brings her own exceptional experience and craft, having worked for other well-known Domaines), Tessier was born.
