Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru
Sustainable - Lutte Raisonnée
100% Pinot Noir
Vineyards & Viticulture
A blend of two parcels, totaling 0.35 hectares, with vines in the Terres Blanches portion.
Pebbly and very chalky, lies upon pure silt
Harvest & Vinification
The grapes are harvested into small plastic crates and undergo triple sorting upon arriving at the estate. Arnaud partly destems the fruit (he uses whole cluster fermentation with old vines) and tastes everything daily during vinification using native yeasts. The wine is aged in oak barrels (80% new, 20% one-year-old, from Tonnelleire François Frères) for 18 months on fine lees and is racked into stainless vats for the last six months of elevage.
