Henri Niepce, the great-grandfather of Hélène, is one of the great figures of Rully. He enormously contributed in the 30’s for Rully to obtain the AOC (appellation d’origine contrôlée) and then to build its fame. Since the beginning of 2005, we are managing entirely the estate. It means 4,50 ha on the most prestigious first cru of Rully. An AC Rully red has been added to this assortment since the vintage 2011. The domain has moved to organic farming in 2009. Hélène Jaeger-Defaix, ingeneer in agronomy and oenologist, works with her husband Didier Defaix, winemaker in Chablis (Domaine Bernard Defaix).
