Côte de Beaune
0.8 acre plot (planted in 1950). All vineyards sustainably farmed (lutte raisonnée). Manual harvest using small bins with strict selection in vineyard. 35 hectoliters/hectare yields on average for Grand Cru Bâtard.
Various types and depths of limestone interbedded with marl (Marl loosely defined as calcium carbonate containing variable amounts of clay.)
Pneumatic press. Wines then moved to individually determined combination of new, second and third-year barrels. Never more than 25% new oak. Extensive bâtonnage of lees during period of malo-lactic to enhance texture and reduce use of SO2. Racked, fined and returned to barrel in Spring after harvest and bottled with minimal or no filtration in September.
