Jane Eyre




Jane Eyre-Renard is originally from Melbourne. In 1998, she was
working as a hairdresser when she asked a customer, who
happened to be the wife of wine writer Jeremy Oliver, if she knew
of any wineries where she could do work experience. The Olivers
recommended Burgundy, which has since been an inextricable
part of Jane’s life. She went on to gain experience working with
Cullen in the Margaret River, Felton Road and Ata Rangi in New

Burgundy in 2004, and started working at Domaine des Comtes
Lafon before becoming assistant winemaker at Domaine
Newman. Jane has developed her own micro-négociant business
and rents a space in a small winery in Bligny-lès-Beaune which she
shares with Dominique Lafon.

from living there, Jane has the skill and has gained the trust of
many, in order to secure parcels of fruit that beautifully showcase
the complex and alluring sub-regions of Burgundy. The Pinot Noir
comes from two parcels located in the village of Comblanchien.

winery is the hallmark of Jane Eyre’s winemaking style. The fruit was
hand picked and de-stemmed prior to crushing. Indigenous yeast
fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks where a
combination of gentle pump overs and punch downs were
employed as needed. The wine matured in 100% French oak
barriques, 25% new. The wine was racked only once in October
2016 before it was bottled later in December without fining or
