QUICK FACTS

It is surprising to plant Pinot Noir in Chardonnay homeland or Aligoté’s one.

Coming from a plot of 0.44 hectares under vine in Corpeau planted by Dominique Derain in 1999. This parcel is located right next to his Aligoté.

Planted to a massale selection clone from a nearby old vine vineyard.
