Vineyards & Viticulture
This 0.82-hectare parcel of Combe d’Orveau sits directly above Le Musigny (Petit Musigny to be precise), separated only by a narrow dirt path. Half was planted in 1940s, one quarter in 1990s and the remainder in 2010. The estate is a total of 6.5 hectares. This property was an early adopter of organics (certified in 1999) and has practiced biodynamics since 2000 (certified 2005).

Harvest & Vinification
Fermentation (up to 30% whole cluster) takes place in oak open-top fermenter (cuve tronconique), with native yeast and manual punch downs. After a gentle pneumatic pressing, the wine is racked by gravity to oak barrels (from Tronçais, Allier). Aged for 18 months (30% new for Grand Cru & 1er Cru, less in new for village), then bottled unfined and unfiltered.
