It comes from vineyards at the base of the Beaune hill on the north side of the town.
The soil is clay-limestone with a light, sandy texture. Stony subsoil.
The grapes are harvested by hand and then sorted on arrival at the winery in order to choose those that appear to be perfectly ripe. The harvested grapes are completely destemmed and transferred to the vat by gravity in order to preserve the integrity of the fruit. They are kept at a cool temperature for 6-8 days to extract their aromatic qualities, and alcoholic fermentation takes place naturally due to the presence of indigenous yeasts.
During this phase, the wine is tasted to determine whether punching down and/or pumping over operations should be carried out in order to extract the noble tannins from the grapes. The wine is placed in French oak barrels for 12-16 months, during which time malolactic fermentation takes place. Depending on the vintage, a light filtration may be carried out before the wine goes into the bottle.
The nose has aromas of red fruits. The palate is elegant and full of finesse.
