A cuvée made from Pinot Fin, an ancient grape variety, planted in 1955 in 1964 on soils of red clay and yellow marl. The estate was certified organic in 1954 and biodynamic in 1998. Yields around 25 hl/ha. Grapes are harvested by hand, with sorting in the vineyard and on tables when necessary. Vinification: semi-carbonic with whole bunches, maceration for 4 weeks. Matured for 1 year in barrels that have seen several wines, followed by 3 months in vats. Bottled without filtration and zero added sulfites.

He started working in 1998 on his family’s estate, spearheading its conversion to biodynamics, and finally taking over the reigns in 2001. Founded in 1952 by his grandfather Pierre, the Clos has never seen the use of chemicals, and has always been cultivated with the greatest respect for the earth.
