This small vineyard of 1 hectare 80 acres and 50 centiares has a confidential production of 4500 liters in a year, representing 6,000 bottles, averagely.

Guaranteed Quality Produce

Its climate guarantees the vines ideal sunshine with an exposure to the east, on a slope in a gentle slope. The mother rock of shell limestone is shallow and supports a little soil subject to scree, in which limestone and pebbles mingle. It is particularly rich in clay and iron with, also, a flat where the silts accumulate. It offers the vineyard with good drainage, about sixty centimeters deep.

Only the upper part of the hillside is susceptible to erosion and requires that growers regularly go up the land. Grands Crus Vosne has familiar aromas of violet and a well-built mouth.
