Great wines are made in the vineyard. Arnaud Tessier is one of the most hardworking vignerons on the Côte d’Or. It’s rare to see him for tastings at the domaine, as he spends all his time working in his vineyards. He began working with his father in the vineyards at the tender age of 14. The vineyards are worked organically, ploughed regularly, and as much care and attention is given to the Bourgogne vineyards as to the 1er Crus – and it shows. In the cellar there are no fancy tricks, just classic vinification of the perfect fruit. The wines are fermented in modest amounts of new oak with indigenous yeast. The élevage is long and slow thanks to the naturally cold cellars. The resulting wines have a crystalline quality thanks to their purity with tension and precision rarely seen.
