“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.
Considered by many to be the top Premier cru plots in the village of Morey. The walls on 3 sides protect the vineyard from a cold north wind, lending the grapes perfectly balanced ripeness each year.
