Nectars de Bourgogne Emmanuelle Baillard

The goal of Emmanuelle Baillard with her nectars de Bourgogne was to offer the best of the fruit.

Origin: France, Bourgogne, Département Merceuil, Cissey


A “nectar” comes from fruits that are pressed (blackcurrant, blueberry, etc.) or refined to obtain a pulp (peach, apricot, etc.) and to which is added the amount of water and sugar needed to dilute and to restore the desired balance between sugar and acid. Otherwise, the fruit juice is often too acidic, too astringent or too thick.

The fruits chosen for the production are from special partnership and issued from reasoned agriculture or organic farming.


Oenologist and passionate by flavors, textures and colors, Emmanuelle Baillard created the nectars de Bourgogne in 2004.

Refreshing, the nectars can be enjoyed alone or accompanied…
