The Wine

Vineyard Profile

  • The appellation of Vosne-Romanée lies between Vougeot to the north and Nuits-St-George to the south. It is home to 6 Grand Cru vineyards, 14 Premier Cru Climats and 36 AOC Lieux-dits. Only Pinot Noir is planted.
  • In the 630 Bèze Chronicle, the village is mentioned as: Villa que Vaona dicitur “the village that they call Vaona”. From the Gallic word Wadna “water” came Vaona. The village was built around a water source called La Fontaine de Vosne. In 1866 the village was allowed to append the name Romanée, an appellation that is found in three Grand Cru climats of the village.


  • The vines are 75+ years old from two lieux-dits, Les Quartiers de Nuits and Les Violettes. Annual production is 900-1200 bottles. The vines have only been treated with organic preparations since 2003. Traditional vinification is used. The wine sees 16 to 18 months ageing in oak casks, 100% new. Bottled non-filtered.
