Paul Jouard is the 7th generation winemaker in this storied family. He has been making the family wines since 1992. He is a throwback to the Burgundy winemakers of old. When we visited him last March, he was late for the rendez-vous because he was trying to maximize his time pruning the vines in the vineyards.
