  • Terroir

    Appellation: The Maranges appellation is the link between the Côte-d´Or and the Saône-et-Loire. The “Clos des Rois” is one of the 7 climats classified as 1er Cru.

    Did you know ?
    The name of Climat comes from the old French enroier which meant to plow. The current spelling therefore stems from a confusion between royalty and the king, a Gallic tool.

    100% Pinot Noir

  • Vinification

    Harvest: The grapes are cut and sorted by hand.

    Vinification: The grapes are destemmed and then placed between 2 and 4 days in stainless steel vats for pre-fermentation maceration. The vinification is done in vats.

    Ageing: Aging takes place in oak barrels for 10 to 12 months.

  • Tasting notes
