Two brothers, a common passion and an unfailing complementarity
Initially hotel and restaurant owners with the Château de Saulon and the Castel de Très Girard in the Côte de Nuits, Lionnel and Didier have been working together for over 20 years.
The richness of their differences created a seamless complementarity between Lionnel and Didier. The desire to devote themselves to their common passion for wine was an obvious choice. The Petitcolas brothers naturally turned to the flagship product of their region to highlight its thousand facets.
Clients, family, friends and restaurateurs have been quick to trust Lionnel and Didier's authentic experience and proven skills to "unearth" nuggets...
After graduating with a scientific baccalaureate and working as a manager in Parisian finance at the beginning of his career, Lionnel quickly returned to his native Burgundy in 1997 to begin his professional adventure with his brother.
He has been managing the company for more than twenty years, supported by his wife Anne-Céline and sustained by the confidence of his team and the great winemakers with whom he works.
Definitely in love with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, his passion for the work but especially his rigor allow him to have a growing confidence in his collaborators!
Didier started his professional career in the restaurant business.
He then worked for fifteen years in the hotel and restaurant industry within the Accor group. In 1996, he returned to Burgundy where he trained in oenology before taking over the restaurant "Castel de Très Girard" in Morey-Saint-Denis.
In the team, Didier is the man on the ground. He manages the purchases, the negotiations and the cordial relations with the winemakers. The finesse of his palate makes him an excellent taster. Thanks to his discoveries, the whole team is proud to offer carefully selected wines.
He is a sports and cigar enthusiast, and a true epicurean who favors convivial moments. His favorite wine? The Pinot Noir from Domaine Ganevat in the Jura. But hush!
