|Composition of the land
||Shallow to heavy soil with a clayey texture and moderate stone content. The soil composition came about from the weathering of thin limestone deposits from the formation of Comblanchien limestone.
||De-stemmed grapes and whole clusters are stacked in stainless steel vats or wooden casks. After about a week of maceration, the fermentation process begins. The wine is then drawn off and some of the pressed grapes are added to this juice. Once assembled, the cuvée is placed in French oak barrels.
||15 months in 50% new wood casks (228L Burgundian tuns).
||Braised wild boar or wild boar stew, roast capon, braised duck and soft cheeses.
