This wine comes from a 0.45 hectare vineyard in the commune of Brochon, known for its chalky clay and sandy marl soils. The vines, were planted in 1975 and are managed using the Lutte raisonnee method of sustainable agriculture. The grapes are carefully destemmed and undergo a cold soak in concrete before fermentation using indigenous yeast and a mix of pump-overs and punch-downs. The wine is then aged for 12 months in barrel, with a portion spending time in oak, though none of it is new. This unique combination of vineyard, terroir, viticulture, and vinification results in a truly special everyday drinker.
