Catherine and Fernand Chevrot manage this estate since 1973, helped by their son Pablo since 2002 after he receive his diploma of Oenologie from the famous Bordeaux School.
Situated in the heart of the Maranges region, at the southern entrance to the world-renowned Cöte de Beaune in Burgundy, this is a vineyard of 13 hectares in area which produces wine from 10 different appellations approved by the INAO (the French National Institute which strictly controls the origin and production of quality wines in France.)
The vineyard enjoys and enviable terroir with a subsoil of limestone, dating from the Jurassic period, and the topsoil, a naturally-irrigated blend of clay and chalk. The climate in Burgundy is semi-continental (hot Summers, cold winters) and the vines of this vineyard enjoy an excellent exposition to the East and South which ensures plenty of warm Summer sun to ripen the grapes. On average, the age of the vines is 35 years, the oldest having been planted in his youth by Fernand's grandfather who is now almost 80 years old.
