Notes from La Soufrandière:

"In a magnificent valley at the foot of the Roche de Vergisson, this old, east-facing parcel of Chardonnay gives perfectly balanced grapes. The hallmark of this wine? A tension and texture that can only come from red soils on Jurassic limestone.

All our vines, between 33 and 80 years old, are magnificently located, facing East or South-East halfway up or at the top of the slopes of very red clay and “crinoidal” limestone, formed over 180 million years ago.

We opted for Organic and Biodynamic Farming as soon as we took the estate over in 2000. To us, this farming that quite simply respects life, that eschews the use of herbicides or synthetic pesticides, seems the only way to produce outstanding wines that are balanced, vibrant, and reveal their terroir. We also limit our yields (to around 40 hl/ha) by natural practices such as bud pruning."
