The Teiller family are amongst Yapp Brothers' longest-serving suppliers and theirs is a typical small family business. Annual production of the white, from Sauvignon Blanc, is in the region of 50,000 bottles, half of which is sold direct from the cellar door. The family also produces fine Menetou Salon rosé and red wine from pure Pinot Noir. Jean-Jacques and his wife Monique are now ably assisted by their daughter and son-in-law Patricia and Olivier who met in Beaune where Patricia was studying oenology. Following a placement in New Zealand, the Teiller's philosophy today is "Cautious modernization with the utmost respect for tradition."
