  • Domaine des sires de Vergy - Bévy (21) Ouvrir

    AOC Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes-de-Nuits

    LOCATION
    The 57-hectare property is located in Bévy, in the heart of the Hautes-Côtes-de Nuits.

    CLIMATE
    Bévy, located at an average altitude of 400m, produces grapes that ripen more slowly and less predictably than on the lower Côtes-de-Nuits. Daily temperature differences of up to 5°C are often registered, especially between daytime and night-time. Every year, the Bévy property is harvested at least a week later than the Côtes-de-Nuits.

    GRAPE VARIETY & CULTIVATION
    Run by Jean Michel Catinot, who was born and raised in the Côte d’Or, the property features limestone and clay soil, identical to the Côtes-de-Nuits. Grape variety is exclusively pinot noir for the reds and chardonnay for the whites. Red wines represent about 80% of overall production.

  • Domaine Moillard - Nuits-Saint-Georges (21) Ouvrir

    LOCATION
    This 20-hectare property is located between Vougeot and Volnay. Half the wines produced here are Premiers Crus such as Pommard Premier Cru Les Rugiens, Pommard Premier Cru Les Epenots, Volnay Premier Cru Le Clos des Chênes.

    CLIMATE
    The climate is mainly continental, with hot summers and dry autumns, which are ideal for grape ripening. These climatic conditions enable the development of high levels of sugar and deep colours.

    GRAPE VARIETY & CULTIVATION
    The property is run by Jacques Briday, Executive Property Manager. The land of the Côte de Beaune is made up of clay limestone and clay from the Middle and Late Jurassic periods. The soil is often brown, with hard limestone gravel.
    The vineyards of the Côte de Beaune are often on younger lands than the Côte de Nuits. The limestone clay base is quite similar, but with less drainage of the soil.
    Grape variety is exclusively pinot noir for the reds and chardonnay for the whites.
