Viticulture

The Diversité cuvee showcases a unique and diverse range of characteristics that reflect its varied soil, sunlight exposure, and clonal blend. It is sourced from four blocks on our estate vineyard, primarily covering the Northern end, containing 7 clones – Dijon-113, -114, -115, -667, -777, Pommard, and a few rows of the Swiss clone Mariafeld. The latter in particular lends natural smoke and spice notes to the wine, which have become a definitive character in the cuvee. The soil variation for Diversité ranges from heavily broken volcanic basalt on the Northwestern block of Dijon-667, to the more lush Nekia soil of the Northeastern block of Dijon-114.
