The Rossignol-Février domain was created in 1774 at a time when the wines were only sold in bulk. In 1922 Louis Rossignol began bottling his own wines and in 1985 he, along with his son Frédéric, formed a GAEC. Today, Frédéric Rossignol is the 5th generation to run this family domaine – his brother runs Rossignol-Cornu in the village. Frédéric’s label dates from his great-grandfather in the 1920s – who, with a local friend, was one of the first in Volnay to bottle and Rossignol-Louis was the domaine name. Today’s domaine adds the Février name which comes from Frédéric’s mother.
Everything here is Biodynamic, and certified so since 2013. Extending over 7.5 hectares, 100% of the production has been bottled and commercialized by the owners for about 40 years now.
Outside of the selection of Volnay vines, there are two villages wines from Pommard including Petits Noizons, Beaune Les Chardonnereux, Bourgogne Chardonnay, Bourgogne Pinot Noir Maison Dieu (near Chateau Pommard), Hautes Côtes de Beaune, Passetoutgrains and Aligoté.
