VITICULTURE / VINIFICATION

• Vines are sustainably farmed

• Vines pruned in Guyot, with a density of 10,000 vines per hectare

• Vineyard holdings are situated in Corgoloin, Comblanchien, and Nuits-Saint-Georges

• Pruning, de-budding, and green harvests limit the yields

• All grapes are harvested by hand
• 100% de-stemming of the grapes

• Grapes are vinified traditionally in cuve for anywhere between 10-15 days, depending on cuvée and vintage

• Wines age in fûts (20-30% of which are new) for up to 18 months before bottling
