Viticulture

Sustainably‐grown.Blend of our old Grillots vine (0.55 ares) and our young Vaux vine (0.56 ares). Average age of the two vines of 35 years. Plot located sheltered between the houses of the hamlet of Chamirey and east facing. Soils are dominated by clay/limestone. All vineyard work is undertaken manually/mechanically (no sprays for weeding). Severe limits to yields, leaving just six clusters per vine.

Winemaking

Manual harvest. Grapes were fully destemmed. Three‐day cold maceration period followed by 3‐4 weeks fermentation fermentation in tank with one pigeage per day. Aging is carried out 100% in barrels including 15% or 20% new barrels depending on the vintages and lasts from 12 to 18 months.
Racking is carried out in July to rid the wine of its thick lees and is followed by fining with egg white barrel by barrel. Three months later, around the end of October, the blending and bottling takes place at the estate, directly without filtration.
