The agronomic yields of this very old vineyard of fine pinot noir are tiny, due to the cordon de Royat pruning, but the wines obtained are surprisingly fresh, energetic and brilliant. Several years of ageing are necessary. They are then characterised by aromas of red fruits with spicy nuances. They are deep and subtle.

Enclosed in a sea of Chardonnay, this very old vineyard of fine Pinots, ideally exposed and managed in cordon de Royat since 1929, flourishes on a clay-limestone soil, typical of the Genelotte.


Hand-picked, rigorous sorting of the grapes before pressing. Partial destemming, traditional vinification in stainless steel tanks, daily punching down, 10 to 15 days maceration, ageing in 228 litre oak barrels for 18 months. The wines are racked twice before bottling. They are not fined or filtered.

The Comtesse de Chérisey estate cultivates 9.30 hectares of vines, 8 of which are Premiers Crus. It is located on the Côte de Beaune, on the remarkable site of the Hameau de Blagny, which belongs to the commune of Puligny-Montrachet.

Their career as farmer-winemakers began with the cultivation of about 1.30 hectares of Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru. The farming practices have been very close to agrobiology for many years. This approach has now been formalised by the conversion to organic farming. Natural and local resources are a priority. Thus, the Martelets produce their own oak stakes and barrels, thanks to the creation of the "Groupement forestier des grands ducs". Their forests are certified. The soils are worked by alternating natural grassing and ploughing. The vineyard is protected by biological control. Tradition and the absolute search for purity are the two requirements of the family. Tradition and the absolute search for purity are the two requirements of the family. Thus, no input is added to the wines apart from sulphur. Fermentation takes place using indigenous yeasts. Yields average 40 to 45 hl/ha. Vinification and ageing take place in 228 litre barrels,...
