Notes from Paris Wine Company:

"Fosse-Grely is a sélection massale planting of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay at the bottom of the hill in Essoyes. Fosse means ditch, and Grely is an old local word that means gravel. Fosse-Grely is the largest parcel at the domaine, and was the first one planted by Bénédicte's father, Gérard, in the 1980s. In addition to their vineyards, Ruppert-Leroy operates a biodynamically-certified farm where they grow their own vegetables, raise animals, produce their own composts / biodynamic preparations, and host conferences on biodynamics."

Winemaking
All cuvées are made using the same process: vinification with natural yeasts without any fining or filtering. Cold settling occurs naturally with the winter frosts. Alcoholic fermentation, natural malolactic fermentation, and 9 months of élevage on fine lees take place in 225L barrels and 500L demi-muids. 18-20 months sur-lie in bottle, disgorged à la volée, and bottled without dosage (Brut Nature) or added SO2
