Bourgogne Chardonnay

The Bourgogne Blanc is sourced entirely from the Village of Maranges.

In the winery, it sees low SO2 additions, indigenous yeast fermentation, natural malolactic and 1 year aging in older oak barrels (228L). There is no bâtonnage, no fining, and only one light filtration.

St. Romain Combe Bazin Blanc

The parcel is southwest-facing on a steep slope of shallow white soil with a high limestone content.

In the winery, it sees low SO2 additions, indigenous yeast fermentation, natural malolactic and 1 year aging in older oak barrels (228L). There is no bâtonnage, no fining, and only one light filtration.

Auxey Duresses Les Hautes Blanc

The parcel is located on the upper slope of Auxey Duress, next to Meursault Les Vireuils. It faces south-east.

The grapes see a light crushing by foot, very slow pressing (6-7 hours), and indigenous yeast fermentation in older oak barrels (228L) for 3 weeks. Natural malolactic, 1 year aging in older oak barrels on lees without batonnage but in contact with lees, racked 3 weeks before bottling, low SO2. The wine is bottled unfined and it only receives one light filtration.

Bourgogne Pinot Noir

68% from Paris l'Hôpital (in the Hautes Côtes by Maranges, granite soils), 32% from Puligny Montrachet (soils with high limestone content)

100% whole cluster if the vintage allows, 4 weeks maceration in wooden tank, no pump-overs, six punch-downs at end of fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Natural malolactic, 10 months aging in older oak barrels (228L). One racking pre-bottling, unfined, and unfiltered.

Bourgogne Rouge Hautes Cotes de Beaune

2016 is the first vintage for this Bourgogne Rouge. It comes from Paris l’Hôpital (next to Maranges) from a parcel that had previously been blended into the Bourgogne Rouge. This is the only corner of the Côté d’Or where granite is exposed. The slope is very steep so the soil is prone to erosion. As a result, growers keep the cover crop all year around. It makes a very elegant and structured Haute Côte.

Pommard Trois Follots

75% Trois Follots (near Rugiens) southeast-facing, steep slope with limestone bedrock. 25% Rue au Porc (just above D974) silty soil on limestone bedrock.

100% whole cluster, 3 weeks indigenous yeast fermentation in wooden vats, 24 days of maceration (no pump-overs though punchdowns at end of fermentation). Natural malolactic and 10 months aging in barrels (33% new oak, 228L, Minier Tronçais). One racking pre-bottling, unfined, unfiltered, total SO2 25-45 mg/L.

Volnay Les Lurets

100% whole cluster, indigenous yeast fermentation in wooden vats, 24 days maceration (no pump-overs, punch-downs at end of fermentation). Natural malolactic and 14 months aging in barrel (33% new oak, 228L, Minier Tronçais). One racking pre-bottling, unfined, unfiltered, total SO2 25-35mg/L.

Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Damodes

Far northwest corner of the Nuits appellation, bordering Vosne, mid-slope, hard limestone bedrock.
