The Wine

Vineyard Profile
  • Total Size: 18.57 ha (45.9 acres)
  • Winery Holdings: 0.79 ha (1.97 acre)
  • The Mazoyères vineyard abuts Latricières to the west and Aux Charmes to the north. Wines are allowed to be labeled as Charmes-Chambertin and usually are. Although shallow, the vineyard soil contains stones as opposed to just limestone pebbles, and a good mix of iron and active chalk.  The vineyard rises from 853 feet to 919 feet above the main road D 674.
  • Only Pinot Noir is planted.
  • Mazoyères is the regional form of ancient French Maisiere “debris, rubble, high walls, house.” Tradition tells us that there were modest houses on this Gevrey-Chambertin lieu-dit probably adjoining the farming domaine Aux Echézeaux.
