The wines and the vineyard


The “Monopoles”

The estate has, among others, three plots that are qualified as monopoles. In Burgundy, a monopole is a plot named after a climat (a specific place or lieu-dit) belonging to a single owner.

The “Clos de la Perrière” is located in the heart of the village of Corpeau, south of Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet. The terroir is a sandy-silty limestone, and with its southern exposure, produces early ripening. The 3 hectares that constitute the Clos are surrounded by an old stone wall protecting Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Aligoté. The wines from the monopole are classified appellation “Bourgogne”.

The Clos du Moulin aux Moines is the estate’s emblematic plot, 3 hectares planted with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the appellation Auxey-Duresses. Protected by a long, high stone wall, it is situated at the bottom of a hill and bordered below by a stream known as the Cloux. The soil is composed of red clay and limestone, and has been tilled with the help of draught horses since 2018.

The Clos Orgelot is a Pommard Premier Cru appellation. It is named after a former owner. This monopole of a little over one hectare was mentioned among the “most renowned cantons in Pommard”, in Doctor Denis Morelot’s “bible,” published in 1831. This famous plot is located above Les Épenots, between Les Pézerolles and the Clos des Mouches. The soil is composed of a wide diversity of red clays and limestone clays.

Artists’ Cuvées

These cuvées move away from conventional Burgundian tradition – with sulfur-free vinification (since 2010), glass corks and neo-retro vintage labels. They follow the plot-based approach but with a more contemporary twist.

Vin de France Pinot Noir

Vin de France «Pinot Noir»

The Pinot Noir is the product of a plot at the edge of the estate, in a place known as “Les Saunots”, at the crossroads between the villages of Auxey-Duresses, Meursault and Monthelie. However, the plot is not part of a classified appellation and the wine is therefore a Vin de France.
