The vineyards are farmed according to "la lutte raisonnée", using sustainable agricultural methods, reducing the use of chemicals in order to respect the land and its environment. The soils in the vineyard are limestone mixed with marl, retaining moisture in dry weather, but also offering good drainage in cooler weather.

This wine was made using traditional Burgundian vinification techniques. Fermentation started in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with submersions of the cap or "pigeages" during fermentation. It was then transferred to oak casks (25% new) where it underwent bâtonnage of the fine lees until it had completed malolactic fermentation. It was racked after spending 10 months ageing in oak, lightly fined and filtered, prior to being bottled.
