Charles is a very big fan of the variety Aligoté. His family at the beginning used to bottle its own Aligoté, but when it got out of fashion, they decided to sell the grapes to wholesalers, instead. But Charles wanted to start bottling again this grape that has always fascinated him during his blind tastings. If it were done today, the Aligoté would have been bottled under the family name, but done in 2018 – period when Charles started his own label – it would have damaged the family’s balance.

Beside the Aligoté, Charles started bottling also other five kinds of wine in his first year, using grapes bought from friends he though they were cultivating responsibly and he started making wine in an area of the estate that the father was using already during the war.

Charles follows the same winemaking method as his father, with the only exception of the wine refinement, which is a little bit shorter. Charles’s goal is to produce wine that is ready to be consumed, but he has always kept in mind that his estate is located in one of the most important areas in the world for the production of wine longevity.

We can clearly say that Charles is, therefore, one of the farsighted wine producers in Burgundy as of today. His passion and dedication are transpired in every bottle.
