In The Vineyard
This wine comes from the blending of our oldest vines; plots at La Chapelle in the south and Godefroy in the east.  Gamay Noir vines up to 90-years-old.  Vines planted at a high density of 9–10,000 vines/ha, pruned into low goblets, traditional in crus.  Ground grassed and partly flowered for Terra Vitis reasoned agriculture (biodynamics). Green harvests to concentrate the crop.

Winemaking
Made like a fine Burgundy, NO carbonic maceration.  Hand-picked, ferments over 13–15 days, pneumatic press, 10% matured in new barrels, the rest in 1–5-year-old barrels all for 9 months.
