    This comes from one and a half hectares near the RN74 east of Chambolle-Musigny. Using just 10% new oak (with the balance up to four years old), this wine has a nose of earthy, dark berry fruit and a silky quality on the palate. Serious wine at this level. For drinking now to 2020.

Location
Chambolle-Musigny
Size of domaine
6.5 hectares of which Bourgogne Rouge is 1.5 hectares.
Grape
Pinot Noir on 161-49 root-stock. Carefully selected fine clones rather than massale selection. Training is guyot and cordon de royat, average vine age is 20 years and plant density is 10,000 vines per hectare.
Terroir
Limestone and clay (Argilo calcaire) together with alluvial silt. Gentle east facing slopes at 250-300 metre altitude.
Viticulture
De-buds and occasional green-harvest. Plough the soil in the winter and spring with 2-3 in between. Rows are not grassed at the moment. Use copper to combat mildew and sulphur for oidium. ‘Confusion sexuelle’ to stop pests regenerating. Natural compost when required. Manual harvest and then use a vibrating sorting table (table de trie) to eliminate imperfect fruit. Yield of 47 hl/hect.
Vinification
Grapes are de-stemmed but not crushed prior to a pre-fermentive maceration for 5-6 days at 12C. Fermentation with natural yeasts (at 30 to 32C) lasts for around 10 days in temperature controlled stainless steel cuves. There will be around 12 pigeages and 5-6 remontages during the fermentation. Press wine (Pneumatic) is added straight back to the assemblage. A 16-18 month élevage in medium toast barrels (15% new, 85% 2-3 years old) with batonnage. Racked once after 12months and once before bottling. No fining but a light filtration. One domaine bottling in March using natural cork. Organic certification from the 2007 vintage. Production of 7,300 bottles.
