A single vineyard wine from the 0.4 hectare plot ‘Baudet au Nord’ in Cormot-Nolay, Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Beaune. Age of vines range from 56 to 71 years.

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Terroir: This west-facing vineyard constitutes marl-limestone soil treated with plant-based biodynamic preparations. Green manure is implemented, utilising plants from the extensive cover cropping over the years.

Vinification: Minimalist winemaking based on ancestral techniques. Sulphites and any other form of inputs eschewed. The grapes are lightly pressed, then go through semi-carbonic vatting in whole harvest for a few days.

Ageing and Bottling: 12 - 24 months in oak barrels on fine lees, duration depending on the vintage. Bottling by hand with a manual bottle filler and corking machine.

The Producer

Domaine de la Roseraie is a fruit of labour for Julien Petitjean, a former historian who made a career switch to viticulture and winemaking at the beginning of the 2000s. The domaine was incepted in 2012, and currently comprises a 5 hectare vineyard with 2.8 hectares producing wines.

In search of the most natural wine production methods and in his endeavour to replicate the vibrance in cuvées reminiscent of pre-technological eras, he explored and applied medieval winemaking techniques, resurrecting simplicity and purity in the processes.

The principles of biodynamic are followed, with cover cropping practised and biodiversity embraced. Vinification stays truthful to ancient techniques. Julien leaves the wines as long as it takes, sometimes years, to complete the fermentation process. Wines are bottled by hand without fining and filtration, nor addition of sulfites.
