Area: 0.2760 ha.This locality lies at the foot of the Roche de Solutré, facing due east.
The vines are cultivated biodynamically.
Harvesting is entirely manual. After decanting, the musts are transported daily to Puligny-Montrachet for fermentation and ageing, under the watchful eye of Domaine Leflaive's technical team.
Vinification takes place in vats, and ageing lasts from 15 to 16 months.
Pressing: Long, gentle pneumatic pressing, 24-hour decanting, followed by settling and racking.
Fermentations: 100% in oak barrels.
Aging: After 12 months in barrel, the wine is aged for 6 months in vats, where it is prepared for bottling.
Fining: Homeopathic fining (fish glue) and very light filtration.
