“It’s hard to get good grapes from vines planted on a cement highway.” Winemaker at Domaine Arlaud, Cyprien, states his reasoning for not using tractors in the vineyard, as part of his conversion of all the family properties to biodynamic vineyards, starting in 1997 when he took over. Dom. Arlaud is bottling some of the more lively and exciting Burgundies today. Their naturalistic approach continues in the winery where minimal intervention is done, and the fruit and terroir of Burgundy are allowed to speak for themselves.
“Aux Chesaux” comes from a Premier Cru plot from 40 year old vines on the Gevrey-Chambertin side of Morey-Saint-Denis. This area is cooler due to the constant winds, therefore having a later ripening time. The wine is aged in barrels, 20% of which are new.
