Unique Crémants de Bourgogne, Les Grands Terroirs 

We have 170 hectares in Burgundy dedicated to Crémant de Bourgogne, stretching from the Auxerrois in the north to the Couchois in the south. This vineyard contains remarkable plots of land that have been selected to produce unique Crémants de Bourgogne, Les Grands Terroirs.

To the north: the terroir of Molesme and its Les Lavots plot. The 3.46 hectare plot combines the perfect combination of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay while expressing the full potential of this exceptional terroir. It takes its name from its stony, hard limestone soil strewn with lava rock fragments. The vines thrive on shallow clay and limestone soils, requiring alternating mechanical work under the row and manual work to ensure the best possible harvest!

A carefully selected plot of land...

In Côte de Nuits, opposite the Clos de Vougeot is En Bollery. In 2013 and 2014, Louis Bouillot planted a large single vineyard of 9.6 hectares with 7.2 ha planted with pinot noir and 2.4 ha with chardonnay which flourish on beautiful deep clay soils. For our En Bollery cuvée, 4.82 hectares of Pinot Noir vines were selected for its production. The vines are grown high and wide, and the soil is worked with the utmost care, using mechanical weeding. The spontaneous grass cover present on the entire plot mean that plant cover experiments can be carried out regularly there.

In the Côte de Beaune, on the heights of Savigny-lès-Beaune Chenôvre (410 m), an enclave of protected nature, surrounded by woods and bordered by a field, a haven of peace that brings out the very best in the Chardonnay. The selection of plots for les Grands Terroirs here consists of rows of vines located at the top of the plateau on a clay-limestone soil with a dominant lacustrine limestone, benefiting from good rainwater retention.
