Domaine Dublère


Blair Pethel is among the rarest of all birds – a transplanted American who makes pure and terroir-specific wines in Burgundy.  After moving his wife and children to Beaune in 2003, Blair graduated from the prestigious Lycée Viticole de Beaune, and began producing his first wines in 2004 and 2005.


Blair Pethel’s Domaine Dublère (i.e., Domaine du ”Blair”) now consists of roughly 3 hectares of old vines plus fruit that he buys from another 3 hectares of vineyards. Blair adheres to a fundamentally organic regimen; and he performs all labor himself, from ploughing and pruning to scientific analysis during fermentation.


The whites are directly pressed, then racked into barriques for alcoholic (limited batonnage) and malolactic fermentation. All the whites are racked by gravity into oak barrels for 18-20 months and The reds undergo a one week cold soak, followed by natural fermentation (with pigeage). After pressing and settling, the wine is racked by gravity into oak barrels and aged 18-22 months. All wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered.
