A single-vineyard wine, with grapes grown on 55 year-old vines.

Varietal: Aligoté

Terroir: Vineyard located in the southern part of Bouzeron, on a west facing slope with an altitude of 340m. The marl-limestone soil is lightly ploughed and undergoes phytosanitary treatment that abides to organic requirement.

Vinification: The grapes are manually harvested. They are lightly crushed and pressed slowly. The musts are then allowed to settle naturally for 12 hours to allow pre-oxidation that will strengthen and protect the future wine. Alcoholic fermentation then takes place for a duration of 2 - 6 months at an average temperature of 12 degree celsius. Malolactic fermentation naturally end once temperature rises at the arrival of spring.

Ageing: 10 to 12 months in oak barrels on fine lees. Bottling by hand with a manual bottle filler and corking machine.

The Producer

Domaine de la Roseraie is the fruit of labour for Julien Petitjean, a former historian and musicologist 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 organic and biodynamic farming 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.

Maison Le Trèfle is a négoce label parallel to Domaine de la Roseraie, with the same viticulture approach applied to the vineyards
