Vineyard managment

Vines planted in 1960. The soil is worked in its entirety, with respect for the environment and the plant, in Organic Agriculture. Grass cover is natural. The biodynamic approach (certification in progress) enables us to be as close as possible to the terroir, with a constant search for balance between the vine and its environment.


Hand-harvested, slow-pressed and vinified with respect for the grapes, without the addition of sulfites. Fermented with indigenous yeasts in new barrels in our underground cellars. Aged for around 18 months in barrels.


Served around 14°C
Bois du chêne opens with a fruity, floral nose. On the palate, it develops a complex structure with a fresh attack followed by a beautiful minerality. Slowly, this cuvée reveals itself to be round and fruity, with a long vanilla finish.
