A brilliant young talent crafting crystalline white Burgundies out of supposedly ‘humble’ Mâconnais terroirs, Jessica Litaud is establishing her domaine as world class with each new release.

After working with Jean-Marie Guffens and spending two vintages with Jean-François Ganevat in the Jura, Jessica returned in 2019 to take over her family’s 5.5ha of biodynamically farmed vines, including some of Pouilly-Fuissé's long-awaited 1er Cru vineyards: ‘La Marechaude’, ‘Sur La Roche’, and ‘Les Crays’.

Jessica times the harvest to ensure freshness and vibrancy, with the grapes undergoing a gentle pressing and extended elevage on lees in old 228-litre barrels. Litaud’s wines are characterised by their purity and fruit concentration, balanced by gentle oak and mineral nuances.

Fast becoming one of our most-requested allocations throughout the year, we are delighted to offer Jessica’s exceptional 2022s alongside tiny quantities of some back vintages direct from the domaine’s cellars.

Layered and precise, balancing generosity and control.
