Vineyards & Viticulture
As a result of severe crop loss in the 2021 vintage, barrels were at risk of being left empty, which is not good for sanitation or the hearlth of the wood. Since each barrels is used over ten years, maintaining their integrity was of upmost importance. Emmanual made the choice to buy vineyards in Languedoc (sites are in organic conversion with certification in 2023), had a partner make the wine, and brought it to Burgundy to age and bottle at the Guillot-Broux estate.
