The history of the Boursot Family dates back to, at least, 1550 with Guillaume Boursot already winegrower. He generated a lineage in Chambolle, all winegrowers from father to son.
Ernest Boursot, born in 1896, and his brother, André Boursot, each owned a domain passed down by their ancestors. At their death, my father, Jean Boursot (picture), born in 1922, inherited a part of the vineyard from his father and his uncle.
At this period, he sold all the production to wine merchants. In 1974, helped by his wife Charlotte, he decided to put the wine in bottles and opened the first tasting cellar in Chambolle-Musigny.
