Variety: Pinot Noir
When Sophie Confuron took over for father Jean-Jacques after he fell ill, the vines were superbly located, but the cellars were outdated. While in wine school, Sophie Confuron met her future husband Alain Meunier. They decided to make wine together in 1985. Sophie enjoys joking and mentions that she married Alain for love since he did not have any vineyards of his own. They have 8.5 hectares of vineyards over fourteen appellations. Every last bottle is sold on a strict allocation basis internationally. Overwhelming demand for their Pinot Noirs have led the couple to create a second super-negociant operation; they buy grapes with the same standard as the other wines, and sold under the Fery-Meunier label.
