ORIGIN

The area which constitutes the Bourgogne appellation spreads across 384 villages of the Yonne, Côte d’Or, Saône & Loire, and Rhône departments. Starting in the North, from the region of Chablis and Auxerre, to the South in the region of Macon, and passing through the Côte d’Or and the Côte Chalonnaise, the Bourgogne wines stem from very diverse terroirs.

In the North, the wines are lively and fragrant, while in the South, they are more structured.

Our Bourgogne rouge wines are a blend of grapes from the Côte Chalonnaise and the Côte de Beaune which bring fruit and roundness, with a little Auxerrois grapes for freshness.

Varied terroirs with limestone hillsides, sometimes chalky or Kimmeridgian in the North, with the marl and limestone of the Côte d’Or and the clay with hints of granite from the Saône and Loire.

VARIETAL

The Pinot Noir is the only grape variety used for our Bourgogne rouge.

The Bourgogne rouge is a pleasant and well-balanced wine that nobly represents the Pinot Noir grape variety, with its procession of red fruit aromas, supple structure, complemented by the presence of moderate tannins.

- Density of at least 10 000 feet/ha.
- Pruning : Guyot.
- Manual harvest.
- Yields of 55 hl/ha in a standard vintage.

CHARACTERISTICS AND ASSETS

The miracle of Burgundy’s wines begins by the end of the first millennium.

As a result of the disorder in Charlemagne’s Empire, Europe was threatened by barbarians. But from the heart of Burgundy will spread one of the greatest movements of revival. The Benedictines from Cluny (909) near Mâcon and the Cistercians from Cîteaux (1098), who’s power and wealth surpassed that of kings, will dedicate a part of their activities to the elaboration of great wines for the glory of God.
