In 1975 this estate was established by Chantal and her husband. Today the children now oversee the Domain and the 35 acres of organic vineyards located in the Cote de Beaune and the Cote de Nuits. The focus of the estate has always been the fruit and the farming practices. Once the fruit is harvested there is very little intervention in the winemaking. This embodies the philosophy of the family and their desire to express the place. Many preach this, but then produce wines that are manipulated with oak or other tones. These wines have elegant texture, purity of fruit and beautiful minerality. Fifteen-plus years of organic farming of course contributes to this as do the estate's slow fermentation with wild yeasts, minimal pigeage and bottling without fining or filtration. Another factor in the subtle fruit and terroir expression in these wines is the careful use of sulfur-dioxide. Some of the bottlings are drinking well in their youth, others will benefit from some time in the cellar.
