Gamay grown on a terroir with a slab of pearly limestone with crystals, veins of black manganese, and almost no soil between 5 and 50 cm. From vines planted in 1953. The estate was certified organic in 1954 and biodynamic in 1998. Grapes are harvested by hand, with sorting in the vineyard and on tables when necessary.
