100% Aligoté from vines planted on clay and gravel soils in the lieu-dit of Le Tartre et Les Fas in the commune of Bligny-lès-Beaune. The grapes are hand-harvested and handled in such a way as to minimize oxidation. It is pressed in whole clusters and fermented naturally in stainless steel with temperature control, the focus being maximizing the freshness of the wine, which spends 9 months on the lees in tank, before bottling without filtration.
