An exceptional region

                This " land blessed of the God " extends over almost 25,000 ha. Noble grapes, an ideal climate and the ancestral know how of wine growers: these are the main contributors to the quality of the wines of Burgundy.

The grape variety : for class

It is the grape variety that gives bouquet and flavour to the wine whilst also expressing the character of the terroir - the soil in which it grows.

The terroir : for character

Nature has endowed Burgundy with exceptional soils that from the very earliest times man was able to recognise and put to use.

The vintage : for originality

Climate is the tool that nature uses to put the final touches to the character of the wine..

Know-how : for style

Without the knowledge and talent of the wine maker there simply would be no great wines.
