Simone’s terroir is the soul of Clos Marey-Monge. Only half a hectare in size, Simone was classified première cuvée by Jules Lavalle in 1855. In 2009, Claude and Lydia Bourguignon’s scientific study confirmed Simone’s soils are, in fact, equal to those of a Grand Cru, and proudly show off one of the highest recorded clay densities in Burgundy.
Clos Marey-Monge’s seven terroir are each bestowed with different soils and microclimates. The fruit from each plot is hand-picked, hand-sorted fermented and barrel-aged separately for 18 months and then blended together. The result is the perfect expression of each vintage, revealing the personalities of each individual terroir, while creating a singular soul that stands elegantly as one.
Produced from the youngest vines of Clos Marey-Monge, but born from terroir that has been cultivated for a millennia, Vivant Micault is bursting with energy, yet tamed with elegance. Even our youngest vines are now matured older than 30 years and are now behaving at their very best.
Our Côte de Nuits wines represent the very best of the northern region of the Côte d’Or. From Gevrey-Chambertin to Nuits-Saint-Georges, our signature winemaking technique creates the purest expression of each terroir and vintage.
Côte de Beaune is the southern part of the Côte d’Or and the place we call home. Our friendly relationships with our neighboring appellations enables us to produce wines from the beautiful villages that surround Pommard, including Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet, Aloxe-Corton, Ladoix, Meursault, Pernand-Vergelesses, Puligny-Montrachet and Volnay.
