Yann Durieux, Nuits-Saint-Georges

Yann Durieux is an exceptionally talented young winemaker who is making his mark in Burgundy. The fourth generation of a family of winemakers from Nuits-Saint-Georges, he vinified his first vintage solo aged 13, and later worked at Domaine Prieuré-Roch for several years. Sharing his winemaking philosophy and deep love of terroir, Yann saw Henry-Frédéric Roch as something of a father figure; Henry-Frédéric encouraged him to vinify his early vintages, 2008 and 2009, in the Prieuré Roch cellars. Since 2010 Yann has been producing his own wines for sale. In the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits where Domaine de la Romanée-Conti is his neighbour, he owns parcels of vines and works with plots en fermage in magical terroir. Yann has a deep understanding and love for this land, having followed in the footsteps of his great-grandfather, grandfather and father to make wine here. He is a perfectionist, and evangelical about working in harmony with nature, and his wines are stunning for their purity, delicacy, freshness and elegance. In short, he is the future of Burgundy.
