More info

The grapes come from four terroirs within the Puligny-Montrachet appellation, where the average vine age is 45 years. The younger vines impart fruit-driven characters, while the older vines imbue the wine with freshness and depth of flavour. The clay-limestone soils are formed on gravel beds which produce elegant, fine wines with a touch of mineral salinity. The vines are sustainably cultivated to respect the equilibrium of the environment, with the aim of limiting treatments to what is strictly necessary. Careful pruning ensures foliage is left from a height of one metre, so the grapes have sufficient leaves to synthesise the natural sugars. This labour intensive pruning also encourages aeration of the bunches and optimal sunlight exposure. 90% of the work is done by hand, and only by professionals using the purest Burgundian traditions, to ensure a modest yield of high quality, ripe fruit. Manually harvested at optimum maturity.

The grapes were pneumatically pressed at less than 1.2 bar to preserve the aromas. The must was clarified by cold settling over 24 to 48 hours, before being transferred by gravity into French oak barrels. Fermentation took place with the natural yeast present on the grape’s skin, to obtain the purest expression of terroir. Maturation on the fine lees lasted for one year in carefully selected barriques of 228 litres, of which 50% were new; the remainder were seasoned barrels of three to five vintages. The wine was bottled with minimal fining and filtration and only limited sulphur was applied.
