Reflection on the vineyard’s equilibrium

The philosophy in a Grand Cru is not to force the plant to produce maximum yield but rather to bring out the full potential of the terroir, taking into account the diversity of the various soil types as well as the natural differences between each vine plant.

Historically the vineyard was planted at a density of  6 300 plants per hectare. A decision was made in 2012 to increase the density in newly planted plots to 8 100 plants per hectare. This gradual re-planting programme (which has brought the average age of the vines to thirty years) will guarantee a more regular and even better quality production in the long term.
