THe vineyards producing our Vosne-Roman�e are located in the climats 'Les Quartiers de Nuits', 'les Hautes Maizi�res' and 'Les Chaladins'. Total area : 1.05 hectares (2.471 acres) Climat & Soil : The 3 plots are located in the north of Vosne-Roman�e, touching Vougeot Grand Cru. The soil is a classic mix of limestone and clay. However the plot 'Les Hautes Maizi�res' offers a solid calcareous entrochal. WINEMAKING AND AGING To preserve their integrity, grapes are carefully harvested then sorted out by hand and totally destemmed. Before beginning the alcoholic fermentation we make a cold prefermentation during 4 to 6 days to work on the phelonic component's extraction. Then maceration lasts for 15 days during which we'll use only pigeages (punching the cap). Intensity and numbers are lead to the concentration of tannins, perfumes and colour. Alcoholic fermentation is realized with natural yeasts. After maceration, free and press wines are separated for aging. Aging is taking place 100% in traditional Burgundian 228 liters barreks during 16 months with around 40% of new barrels. Only French oak coming mainly from Bourgogne, Allier and Vosges forests is used.
