Keep it natural, baby.
Produced from a mix of Ploussard (60%) and Pinot Noir (40%) which are co-fermented. The wine is then aged in stainless steel for one year and one year in 225 liter barrels. A single vineyard wine, the Bernardines site is within the confines of the village
He installed on approximately 3 hectares of vineyards AOC Arbois since 1996 full time. The vines are planted in full on Vadans commune, a village of 300 inhabitants located north of Arbois which ensure the remains of a 12th century castle. The southeastern slopes exhibition provides a comfortable sunshine, which allows a relatively early ripening of the grapes.
The quality of my wines mainly depends on the health of the grapes. To get there, you have to be very rigorous in the work in the vineyard: respect soils with light gear and greenest possible maintenance practices (green cover every second row, tillage with a spading spring followed a hoe with a horse in June), weeding is done only under the row. Fungicide treatments are limited to six per year. The harvest is manual and sorting in the vineyard is very severe.
