Notes from North Berkely Imports:

"Surrounded by the imposing cliffs of Solutré and Vergisson, the family estate is located in the limestone-rich valley of Vergisson. Soils here are a mix of limestone scree, fossilized limestone and colored clays, each terroir offering a particular character to each wine; the Barrauds take particular care to ensure each separate terroir is expressed clearly in each wine. Vines are cared for according to organic principles; the estate will achieve organic certification as of the 2022 vintage.

Harvest is done by hand in multiple passes to ensure grapes are perfectly ripe. Fruit is delicately pressed in cluster via pneumatic press. Juice is placed in temperature-controlled tanks to settle overnight, and is then transferred via gravity to either barrel or tank where both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation takes place naturally. After at least a year, depending on the cuvée, the wines are racked and placed in tank before being bottled unfined and unfiltered."
