Named after the name given to the piles of stones gathered in the vineyards, this parcel is made up of gravelly soil, over pink Premeaux limestone. The resulting wines are structured and supple, which this year express themselves in great minerality and remarkable balance between richness, length and rectitude. For wine-lovers able to wait a few years.
Vinification and aging:
The harvest is completely destemmed before being placed in the vat. Fermentation starts naturally thanks to indigenous yeasts.
In March, after 6 months of aging and following the auction, the acquired barrels leave the Hospices cellar and settle in the cellar of Château de Charmont, next to the Premiers and Grands Crus of Maison Edouard Delaunay.
The wine finishes its aging in its original barrel or is re-intoned if we deem it necessary for its good development.After 9 months of aging in our cellars, the wines are then ready to be bottled and reach the cellars of our customers.
The estate produces 140 barrels each year, divided into 18 vintages.
