Vincent purchased this parcel in 1990 and replanted it. It is located in the lieu-dit les « Jouères ». All the plantations are the result of a massale selection that takes place within the family vineyards on our own plants. This appellation is located between Meursault and Volnay, and deserves to be better know since its wines are really fine and elegant.
On the slope on Auxey-Duresses’ side, with eastern exposition.
Average age of the parcels:

Vinification and ageing
Grapes are hand sorted at the sorting table, they are stemmed and put in open tank for the alcoholic fermentation with temperature control. No artificial yeasts added, exclusively indigenous yeasts to maintain the typicity of the terroir and of the vintage. Manual punchdowns and pumpings. The wine is then pressed and transferred to oak barrels.
Approximately 15-18 mounths. Racking after the malolactic fermentation. Filtration is light or even nonexistent in order to preserve the aromas. Bottling takes place at the domaine.
100% oak – 25% new barrels

Fine and elegant wine, with a good length. Red fruits, blackcurrant notes.
