Bourgogne Aligoté : (White wine)

2 photos

         Made from the Aligoté grape variety, this dry white pairs nicely with raclette, fish dishes,… or makes for an authentic Kir (1/5 crème de cassis, 4/5 Bourgogne Aligoté). Our Aligoté is distinguished by a lovely fruitiness (mirabelle plum, grapes,…) nicely round and well balanced.

Bourgogne Passetoutgrain : (Red wine)

2 photos

         An all-purpose wine combining the liveliness of Gamay with the subtle character of Pinot Noir. We now offer two styles of Bourgogne Passetoutgrain: one [Bourgogne Passetoutgrain Cuvée du Verger] easy-drinking, fruity and pleasant early on, the other more traditional [Bourgogne Passetoutgrain Cuvée Tradition].

Village appellations :

                     All of the following wines are made from 100% Pinot Noir:

Morey-Saint-Denis :

         Lovely aromas (raspberry, black currant, wild strawberry, gooseberry, violets,..) juicy, powerful, it pairs beautifully with red meats and firm-rinded cheeses. It is harmony incarnate, combining finesse and structure.

Chambolle-Musigny :

3 photos

         In its youth, with gooseberry or raspberry in the fore, our Chambolle-Musigny Vieille Vigne (Old Vine) will surprise you with its juxtaposition of finesse and ample “mouthfeel”. This vineyard was planted by my grandfather, before the creation of the appellation system.

Morey-Saint-Denis Premier Cru Cuvée 'Aux petites Noix' :

3 photos

         A blend of two Premier Cru plots, 'Les Gruenchers' et les 'Clos Baulet', this cuvée of Morey-Saint-Denis Premier Cru is characterized by a taste similar to that of a Gevrey-Chambertin. These two parcels relatively close to one another have a soil with higher clay content.

Morey-Saint-Denis Premier Cru 'Les Faconnières' :

3 photos

         This Premier Cru of Morey-Saint-Denis is situated just below the Clos-de-la-Roche (Grand-Cru). On its poor and dusty soil grow old vines yielding a very elegant and aromatic wine.

Morey-Saint-Denis Premier Cru 'Les Monts-Luisants' :

3 photos

         This Premier Cru of Morey-Saint-Denis is well known: situated above Clos-de-la-Roche (Grand-Cru), almost at the forest’s edge, this plot (with little arable soil) gives us a typical wine, fine and structured.

Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru 'Les Sentiers' :

3 photos

         Situated on the route des Grands Crus, “Les Sentiers” offers complexity, length, and the femininity of Chambolle-Musigny. It will pair admirably with all manner of game, roasts, poultry (duck, guinea hen, pheasant).

Clos-Saint-Denis Grand Cru :

3 photos

         Of the five Grands Crus of Morey, it was the one chosen by our ancestors to give our village its name. Its subsoil of limestone debris makes it perhaps the finest and most subtle of all the Côte de Nuits Grands Crus. As one tastes it, the Clos Saint-Denis goes on and on, conveying a whole array of flavors spreading out on the palate.

Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru :

3 photos

         With its clay-limestone subsoil, this robust and vigorous Gevrey-Chambertin Grand Cru offers, according to the vintage, its traditional fireworks display of flavors.

"If the land is the source of Pinot Noir’s breed, the vintage expresses the varying degree of sunshine. Never overly heady, our wines are for the most part neither fined nor filtered. Enjoyed in moderation, they will delight you with their complex aromas and flavors."
