Allow Vintage Substitution(?) 

The vineyard is located in the village of Saint Romain, above Meursault, at an altitude of 350-400 meters, the highest appellation of the Cote d’Or. The soil is pure limestone and the slope is very steep. Guyot pruning with different seasonal processes in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

100% Chardonnay, 55-year-old vines. The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted out twice (when picking the grapes and on the sorting table). They are then lightly pressed in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in 500-liter French oak casks (15% of new oak) for both alcoholic and malolactic fermentations with wild yeasts. It is aged for 12 months, with occasional stirring of the lees. A month before the bottling, the wine from the differrent barrels is transferred to a stainless steel tank to make the blend. It is fined and lightly filtered before bottling, which is done according to the lunar calendar, on a "fruit" day.
