Côte de Beaune Village, 1 ha : this wine comes from a few plots located at the bottom of the slope of Côte de Beaune, on a sandy and clayey soil. A bit deeper, one finds crumbled limestones from Upper Jurassic (Oxfordian) and Middle Jurassic (Bathonian, Bajocian).

Maranges, 0,55 ha : this Cuvée stems from three tiny blocks: a clayey one, a sandy, and a limestone one, all situated at the foot of the Maranges’ slope. The complementary soils yield complete and well-balanced wines.

Santenay Cuvée “S”, 1 ha: this “S”pecial Cuvée is a veiled reference to David’s grand-parents, because it mainly comes from their first plot: les Cornières (cornouiller is the French for dogwood tree, a bush growing in the area). This vineyard is located in the middle of the village and stands on a very thin soil where the parent rock practically outcrops. Each year, these old vines produce very small millerandés grapes, so flavours are really concentrated. The resulting wine is dense with dazzling fruit expression, fleshy and dainty.


Santenay 1er Cru “Clos Rousseau”, 0,45 ha: this thin Terroir, with plenty of iron and limestone is situated on a south facing slope. Its draining soil offers privileged conditions of maturation to these old vines planted in 1962. This plot was the first Premier Cru owned by the family. It yields wines that are full, rich, generous and powerful.

Santenay 1er Cru “Clos des Mouches”, 0,90 ha : The name of this plot comes from thousands of bees gathering pollen from flowers of the area (Mouches à Miel = abeille, the French for Honeybee). This emblematic plot of the domaine was not replanted for decades after phylloxera, and it is in 1964 that vines were grown there again. This Terroir is located in the heart of the Premiers Crus from Santenay, practically on the limestone parent rock, on a very thin soil. It stands on a crest and gets cool winds which impart a favourable microclimate to the vineyard. The resulting wine is delicate and fine, with silky tannins.


Santenay White, 0,18 ha: located in a Terroir called les Prarons (from “prés longs”, French for long fields), next to Chassagne Montrachet, this limestone and clayey soil is favourable to the cultivation of Chardonnay and produces fruity, mineral and generous wines.

Santenay 1er Cru “ Beaurepaire” White, 0,38 ha: this south-facing Terroir, standing on a Upper Jurassic marl (Oxfordian) which made the reputation of the Côte des Blanc, is covered by many gravels. This wine is ample, mineral, with a nice persistence.
