The Family saga started at the end of World War II, on September 9th 1944, the liberation day of Vosne-Romanée
Suzette SIRUGUE (born BISSEY), a native of the region, coming from a family of vignerons for several generations, met François GERBET, born in The Pyrenées, and one of the liberators of the village of Vosne-Romanée.
The family estate FRANCOIS GERBET was created back in 1946, farming vineyards that have been in the family for more than 100 years.
At the end of the 1940’s, the family vineyards were extended in the climat “les Réas”, located between Vosne-Romanée and Nuits-Saint-Georges.
In the mid-60s, the vineyards of Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits located immediately above Nuits-Saint-Georges were planted.
In 1998, a new plot of Vosne-Romanée village ” Au-dessus de la Rivière” was added to the family vineyards.
In order to perpetuate the family epic, Marie-Odile ARCHAMBAUD GERBET, one of François’s daughters, started in 2004 the company called J & J ARCHAMBAUD with her husband, Jean-Pierre ARCHAMBAUD and her sons, Jean-Philippe and Jean-Christophe.
J&J ARCHAMBAUD is located in Vosne-Romanée, “the pearl of the Côte”, one of the most prestigious wine village in the Côte de Nuits. .
J & J ARCHAMBAUD owns and farm more than 5 hectares of renowned appellations such as :
– Echezeaux Grand Cru
– Vosne-Romanée Premier Cru “Les Petits Monts”
– Vosne-Romanée “Aux Réas”
– Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits
is in a process of conversion to organic farming since 2013, most of the estate acceded already full Organic Certification by ECOCERT.
We follow the principles of biodynamics with the aim of initiating the process of biodynamic certification in the coming years. Beyond the ecological and sustainable approach, it allows to express the best of the mythical terroirs of Vosne-Romanée.
