From 50-year-old vines. This parcel sits just uphill from 1er Cru “Les Pruliers.” Thin layer of top soil, then pure rock terroir. A more robust expression of Pinot Noir. Fruit is hand-harvested and sorted. 100% destemmed. 2 weeks of fermentation then ageing in 228-liter used oak barrels for 18 – 20 months. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, and minimal SO2 added. Organic.
Bertrand Machard de Gramont created the estate in 1983 after having worked for many years for the family domain.
In 2001, the surface covered 6ha thanks to the spectacular replanting on terraces of the "Vallerots" climate, on virgin soil, partly abandoned since Phylloxera.
In 2004, Bertrand was joined by his daughter Axelle.
