History :

This family estate, founded in about 1792, has remained and prospered over several generations, and today comprises an area of 5 ha of vines under ownership.

According to our family archives, the estate was formed just after the 1789 revolution.
1792 marks the real start of a story of wine growers that continues up to our day, thanks to the Pillot family who, having set up in Volnay, began to structure the estate. .

Development of the estate really took off after 1870 through Mr. Edmon Pillot who acquired a number of parcels of land. His son Mr. Philibert Pillot continued to invest in vines. His wife, Mrs. Madeleine Pillot, who became a Chevalier du Tastevin in 1986 at the age of 88, was also involved in the business. His daughter, Miss Anne-Marie Yvonne Pillot married Mr Claude Cluzeaud in the 1950s, who endeavoured to modernize the estate and develop the commercial structure.

After the family estate was split in the 1980s, the Jean-Claude Cluzeaud estate was set up, today comprising a total of 6.50 hectares of vines. Currently Jean Baptiste Cluzeaud his son has taken over the estate, preserving the family tradition and know-how.

Mr and Mrs Jean Claude Cluzeaud and Jean Baptiste, their son who has taken over from them.
