order to maintain the Yonne Vineyards tradition, every piece of land is
subject to a special care all along the year, thus allowing them to express
their qualities and to unveil their traditional identity.
2004, in a permanent effort to improve the quality of our wines, we have
automated the collection of the grape harvest (stainless steel tub, grape
harvest separator, pneumatic wine press). All our stainless steel curves are
self-thermoregulated and they provide a perfect mastery of wine making and
maturing. We are able to track the path of the wine, from the
grape-harvesting to the bottling.
Each parcel is vinified
separatly as grapes from vines planted on the hillsides and grapes from
vines planted on the plateaux grow up differently. Each vat is under
accurate computer monitoring and control by which follow up and
traceability is ensured. Some of our Cuvées are matured in oak barrels as
wood brings more complexity and roundness.
attempt to reach a perfect balance, assemblages are necessary in order to
express the typical nature of the Tonnerre and Chablis Tradition and ensure
total respect to the vintage year. It is the blend of our various pieces of
land that gives our wines their specificity, and even their “unique”
characteristics, however balanced over the vintage years. Customers
appreciate this constant specificity every year.
Combining tradition and modernism, our objective is to privilege wines of
good quality and composition, able to satisfy both the taste of the
various consumers (amateurs or connaisseurs) and the production of typical
