Viticulturists-winemakers for four generations, we tend our vines and produce our wines in the traditional way ...
Hand harvesting, traditional winemaking, a tame kept from plowing that has never known herbicides, thinning, green harvest, organic amendments, ... And objective somes: aromatic concentration, character of the appellation, finesse, freshness, elegance, .. .
Located in the heart of the Cotes de Nuits (in Burgundy) between Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny, this is a 4.5-hectare vineyard in the area that produces a full range of fine wines. Our small family estate has respected for four generations the traditional viticultural methods that allow us to offer high quality wines.
The vineyard enjoys an enviable terroir with a limestone subsoil, dating back to the Jurassic period, and the soil, a mixture of naturally irrigated clay and plaster. The climate in Burgundy is semi-continental (hot summers, cold winters). On average, the age of the vines is 45 years.
The family home and the original cellars (still in use) date back to 1789 (French Revolution) Far from the fashion trends, you will discover that our wines are elegant, fruity and full of freshness while remaining faithful to the "terroir" from which they come. We work our packs ourselves (pruning, green harvesting, ...) and we love to find, the personality, the character of their "climate".
