1er Cru Chatenière

Ground where chestnut trees and hazel trees were planted.

The 2020 vintage is a unique vintage. It is marked by historic precocity from budburst, with an advance of 3 weeks, until the harvest which took place entirely in the month of August. High temperatures associated with a lack of precipitation cause a significant water deficit as well as evapotranspiration phenomena in July and August. The absence of rain, on the other hand, allows the health of the grapes to be very satisfactory. The particular conditions of this vintage generate wonderful balances.


Exceptional view on the vineyard of la Côte. Terroir facing to South-West sited in small, white and very limestone terrasses. A steep enough slope gives an early enough maturity. It became a famous terroir for the last fifteen years.
