Thierry Janots and Richard Bos
We are Thierry Janots (1961), French, and Richard Bos (1967), Dutch, two excellent winemakers with a passion for wines from the Côte d'Or, Bourgogne. In our winery in Meursault we make wines of the highest quality, brilliantly expressing the famous Burgundy terroir. We avoid additives and superfluous manipulations.
In 2005 we founded our own winery. We've known each other since we met in 1996 at the wine school, the Lyceé Viticole, in Beaune. Thierry has worked for numerous famous wineries, like Joseph Drouhin, Louis Latour and Domaine des Comtes Lafon. Richard worked in the Netherlands in gastronomy. Almost ten years after his education in Beaune, he followed his heart and went back to Burgundy. In 2005 we've decided to join forces and founded JanotsBos. We make our own wines, because that's the only way we can guarantee the quality our customers are demanding. Although we are both skilled winemakers, Thierry is focussing on the technical aspects, the wine making, whereas Richard is focussing on the marketing and commercial activities.
With our two Dutch partners Phillis and Paul Berens, we are further developing our winery. At the moment, our eighth vintage, 2012, is in our cellar. On the market you'll find our 2008, 2009 and 2010 wines, and if you're lucky you still might find a fantastic 2007 1er Cru.
All of our wines are made with great care to present you the excellence of Burgundy wines. Time flies when you're having fun.
