Bertrand Ambroise took over the domain in 1987 and has since been crafting wines from his 17 hectares (40 acres) of vines. The domain is currently moving to organic farming though they are not looking for certification; this is a culture of respecting nature and all products used are approved by the various organic certifying bodies.
For Pinot Noir cold maceration takes place for 4 to 6 days before fermentation during which time the cap of grape skins is punched down to enhance the extraction process. Wine will mature in oak barrels where malolactic fermentation will be allowed to take place. For Chardonnay whole clusters are pressed and the juice is placed in a tank where it will rest for 24 to 48 hours to settle before moving to oak barrels for the same aging process as red wines.
Pinot Noir will be bottled without fining or filtration and Chardonnays will receive a light filtration before bottling.
