A relative newcomer who started in 1999, Pacalet does not own any vineyards but instead rents a selection of plots with interesting terroirs. Until 2007 winemaking took place in several borrowed spaces, but then Pacalet purchased a 19th-Century cellar in the heart of Beaune from the de Montille family. He is also regarded as a leading light in the natural wine movement.
