About This Vineyard
The first vines were planted in 1950 and today the vineyard covers 29 hectares in the Hautes Côtes de Nuits, 2 hectares in the prestigious Nuits-Saint-Georges area. In 2000, Patrick switched over to natural production methods and achieved official organic status in 2003. He believes that wine is a link between the earth and our spirit, a sort of ‘psychic fuel’. He is a strong believer in the properties of polyphenols found in wine that are excellent for the skin and help protect cells from free radicals.
Three main grape varieties are grown: 22 hectares of Pinot Noir, 2 of Aligoté and 6 of Chardonnay and Patrick goes to great care to allow the terroir to express itself in the grapes. Indeed, he has a reputation for innovative growing methods, using phytotherapy, isotherapy and homeopathy – with no copper or added sulphur.
