Terroir: Saint Romain is a commune in the Cote de Beaune and a continuation of the vineyards of Auxey-Duresses. At an elevation of between 280 and 450 meters, the vineyards grow on clay-limestone soil with some white marl.
Vinification: The grapes are pressed and undergo a cold clarification over approximately 24 hours // The clarified must ferments in large and previously used old oak vats, to preserve its purity and minerality // Ageing for 12 months on its lees.
Farming organically was an obvious path for Emmanuel as he grew up watching his father doing it. When he struck out on his own, he did so with less than one hectare, adding gradually a plot here and a plot there. Ten years later, he had accumulated eleven hectares of vines, scattered over a few different appellations. Considered a pioneer of biodynamic farming in the region, Emmanuel’s wines are balanced, precise and elegant.
