This wine is a blend of 3 plots in the same area, that’s why we use this unusual and poetic name in burgundy. The selection of this name, “Cuvée Dame Juliette” is also a way to reward Bernard’s mother, Juliette Rion (still living in Vosne-Romanée), for her 60 years of vineyard work.
This wine is from three small plots (0.54 hectare) that are located in the south of the Village of Vosne-Romanée. For this field and for each vineyard of the Domaine, the family RION makes a sustainable and rational agriculture without insecticide and herbicide.
The name, “Dame Juliette” is a way to reward Bernard’s mother, Juliette RION for her 60 years of vineyard work.
After a manual harvest, grapes are destemmed and ferment in a cement tank during about 2 weeks. The grapes are treated manually every day. After the press, the wine will age peacefully in oak barrels (45% of new oak barrels) for about fifteen months.
