The estate

The Maurice family has been growing vines for four generations

Stephen and Lucie

Since the early 2000s, Stephen has stepped in and is part of the new generation at the estate.
Following his wine studies in Beaune, he started out in sales at the estate before he and his wife Lucie set up on their own in 2015.
The estate, therefore, remains closely linked, through accumulative know-how, to its past but it also faces the future, striving permanently to improve on quality.
Stephen makes it a point of honour to respect the terroir; since 2020, the estate has been working to convert to organic farming and will be certified AB in 2023.

Jean-Michel and Yvonne

Jean-Michel was born in 1955 and decided very early on to work in viticulture; he set up on his own in 1981.
He bought some vineyards and planted new ones in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune.
The priory itself soon became too small for the size of the farm, so Jean-Michel and his wife Yvonne constructed new buildings at the entrance of the village of Savigny in 1992.

Henri and Hélène

Henri, born in 1921, ran his family’s vineyards and bought some new plots with his wife Hélène.
However, the farm (now 4 hectares) was not large enough to make a living with, so he took on the dual roles of winemaker and wine broker. The latter suited him perfectly, given his ease in dealing with the clientele.
He began selling his wine in bottles directly from the property in 1960 and, in 1966, he bought the Priory, a Cistercian building that dates from the late 18th century, which would become the heart of the business and give Domaine du Prieuré its name.

Henri et Hélène


At the beginning of the 20th century, Auguste worked for other winegrowers, going as far as Vougeot by bicycle to earn a living. At that time, he planted and cultivated some vines in Savigny lès Beaune.
