Domaine Lucien Jacob
Russell’s House Fizz and House Red are the collaboration of owner Andrew Riley and small family-owned wine-makers, Domaine Lucien Jacob. Made from selected grapes and produced in France, these wines have been fashioned with great character in the small village of Echevronne just behind Beaune.
The story of Domaine Lucien Jacob spans generations, beginning in the early 1900s where they grew framboise and cassis in the hills of Hautes-Côtes-de-Beaune. They sold their berries, liqueurs and spirits to restaurants and bars in Lyon and Paris, which earned them their reputation.
In time, the family was able to purchase a few small vineyards in Savigny-lès-Beaune, and by the 1950s, Lucien began to expand the family holdings in the Côte de Beaune and focused on making wine. The wines are deliciously fruit-forward and expressive.
