Wines organicaly growns
The estate grows red and white wines and also the well known Marsannay Rosé and quality sparkling wines known as crémant de Bourgogne. The vines are the traditional Burgundy varietals of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. We are committed to producing only organic fruit without the use of chemicals such as herbicides and fungicides. If needed and always with caution, we only have to resort to copper sulfate treatment that is allowed in organic farming to protect the vineyard against the mildew attack. The aim here is to suceed in great wines all in the respect of the vineyard, and so it requires a great deal of regular effort from vine grower and his team in doing manualy work such as vines disbudding, leaf -thinning, from the Since 2014, the estate is labelled organic farming certifyed by ECOCERT.
