With 100 AOCs (Appellation d’Origine Controlée), the wine-growing region of Burgundy is the natural home of exceptional, age-old grape varieties.
Between Mâcon and Lyon, the Beaujolais vineyards benefit from a broad diversity of soils with granite in the North and limestone in the South.
A great specialist in Burgundy and Beaujolais wines, Maison François Martenot is located at Vignoles near Beaune. Historically firmly rooted in one of the most prestigious wine-growing regions in the world, it reaps the benefit of its excellent reputation and flawless know-how.
Purchased in 2015 by Les Grands Chais de France, Maison François Martenot proposes three ranges of wine covering the region’s main appellations with nearly 100 appellations: AOP Régionales, AOP Villages, AOP Grands Crus et AOP Premiers Crus. The wines are carefully selected and blended to reflect the full spectrum of character in the Burgundy terroir.
Firmly rooted in the region and backed by the sound experience and presence of our teams in the field, we work side-by-side with over 50 suppliers, a dozen of whom work under multi-annual partnership contracts.
This approach signals our commitment to enhancing the quality of our products and the visibility of our partners.
For example, we have undertaken to develop wine-growing in the south of the region and set up distribution contracts for renowned domains.
This presence is more than necessary to face up to the fragmentation and complexity of the appellations and production in this region.
