Domaine De Montmain, on the Old Vineyards of the Duke of Burgundy

Bernard Hudelot set up the family winery in 1970 on the old vineyards of the Duke of Burgundy. Because of cooling, the area was slowly abandoned, but now again, due to global warming, the Hautes Cotes region is getting its old richness back. With the growth of the business, Bernard decided to name the estate Domaine de Montmain in 1984. After some years, he acquired the great-grandmother’s castle and renamed the estate as Chateau de Villars Fontaine. The estate rests on vaulted arches and elegant square pillars. The vast 12th-century castle has multiple rooms. Bernard Hudelot returned to his village aged 26 to plant vines on these forgotten soils.

Organically Cultivated Vineyards

The cultivation in the vineyards takes place with the Burgundian Upper and Large technique that involves spacing the vine rows. There is minimal use of chemical fertilizers, and mainly sustainable methods are used in their vineyards. Most of the work is done manually by the workers. The main grape varietals that grow in their vineyards are Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Aligoté, and Gamay. The best grapes are used to make their high-quality red, white, and rose wines. In the cellar, vinification takes place with ancient, traditional methods without the use of enzymes or yeasts. Fermentation is done with natural yeasts that allow the wines to retain their natural fruity taste and aroma. Red wines age for 30 months while white wines age for 18 months in French oak barrels. Their wines are perfect if you want to feel the authenticity of Burgundy.
