The creation of the Heresztyn-Mazzini vineyard marks the beginning of a new adventure for Florence, from Burgundy, and Simon, from Champagne. After ten years spent working on the family vineyard in Gevrey-Chambertin, the couple decided to start their own venture. At Gevrey-Chambertin on the Côte de Nuits, Florence and Simon Heresztyn-Mazzini have only this one objective since 2012: to work according to organic and biodynamic practices in the vineyard, vat-house, and cellar and to offer grand cru, premier crus and village wines that are closest to the identity of their 5.5 hectares of Burgundy climats. Their vineyards were certified organic in 2014 and they began farming biodynamically in 2015.
The Domaine Heresztyn-Mazzini is today based on organic growing and biodynamics, as much for vines as vinification, as well as during ageing of the wines. Florence and Simon look for precise and coherent balance from soils through to bottling. This balance is achieved through understanding their terroirs and vines to choose the best options, according to each parcel of vines and each vintage.
