Maison Prosper Maufoux

1 Place du Jet d'Eau, 21590 Santenay

  • History of the House Prosper Maufoux

    In 1860 Prosper Maufoux, notary by profession, left his office to dedicate himself to his passion of wine. He started his own business in Santenay, a Burgundian village located south of the "Côte d'Or" in the heart of the vineyard .
    In 1970, Prosper Maufoux sets up his business in a Town House, built in 1835 by Jacques Duvault-Blochet, in Santenay's main square. Jacques-Marie Duvault-Blochet, at that period, was the owner of the prestigious "Domaine de la Romanée Conti".
    This residence is characterized by the stunning vaulted cellars built on two levels, the oldest dating from the XVth century. It is in this decor that the "maison" continues to exercise its "savoir-faire" nurturing its treasures offspring of the "Côte de Beaune" and "Côte de Nuits".
    Today it is Eric Piffaut, whose family traditions in Burgundy wines date back to 1898, who holds the reins of the "maison".
    The wines are aged in oak barrels whose age, origins and toast levels are meticulously combined and adapted to the origin of the grape and vintage. They are left to rest between 12 and 18 months in the cellars.
    The "maison" also proposes 3 elegant guest rooms :
    - Gravières room : beautiful and spacious (29 m²), wall hangings and two large windows overlooking the old village and the vines, king-size bed ;
    - Beauregard room : cozy, intimate and refined, in shades of pink and pearl gray with three windows overlooking the hills and vines, king-size bed ;
    - Beaurepaire room : elegant with soothing colors, combination of old charm and uncluttered Japanese style, windows overlook the heart of the village,king-size bed.
