A cuvée of Chardonnay grown on 3 terroirs, with Viré-Clessé in the majority bringing richness, Monbellet planted with old vines from 1946, and Les Crays whose chalky soil provides acidity. The estate was certified organic in 1954 and biodynamic in 1998. Yields, around 40 hl/ha. Grapes are harvested by hand, with sorting in the vineyard and on tables when necessary.
