The History

Ami started as a project between two good friends, Paul Marchand-Perarnau and Willy Roulendes. The pair met and worked at Clos du Moulin aux Moines in Auxey Durresses (where Willy is still the head winemaker), before Paul moved to Provence to work at Domaine Hauvette. In 2014, they came back together to focus on terroir-drive, natural wines in Burgundy. They set up a domaine/négoce operation in the Maranges valley, in the south of the Côte de Beaune and started on their first vintage.

They currently own around 2.5ha of vines and purchase 2.5ha of organic grapes in various villages throughout the Côte-d'Or, Beaujolais and Chablis. 

The Philosophy

During harvest, Paul and Willy work tirelessly to pick grapes at the perfect ripeness to achieve a fresh, balanced style of wine they have become renowned for. They farm organically and do everything as naturally as possible in the cellar, vinifying without temperature control using indigenous yeasts. The reds macerate for around 10-15 days - many left untouched to create a fruiter style. The wines are aged in old barrels (never new oak) to showcase the fruit. There is no bâtonnage for the whites but they do like the texture and acid created by keeping the juice on its lees.
