Traditional semi-carbonic whole bunch vinification

We seek to produce the best of each of our appellations according to the climatic characteristics of the vintage. Our primary objective lies in obtaining local wines that best characterize our protected designations of origin.


Our plots are harvested manually and vinified separately in cement and stainless steel vats. The   carbonic maceration lasts 10 days with regular punching down and pumping over in order to work as much as possible to extract the phenolic matter from our grapes. The malolactic fermentation is carried out then the Juliénas is aged 9 months in oak barrels (6-7 wines) and bottled.


Winegrower's tasting: Garnet in color, our Chénas Vieilles Vignes is a red wine aged in oak barrels from 4 to 6 wines so as not to extract too pronounced a woody side but rather a finesse on a light vanilla note. Located in the commune of Chénas in the old town, Chénas remains the most Burgundy of crus. Floral notes, notes of cherries, plums and blackcurrant combined with a light woody taste. Slight woody taste.
