The actual vintage
Introducing the terroirs of Lavaux
And the vines during the COVID lock down?
In March-April nature lived its moods far from the pandemic and the lock down recommended by the sanitary authorities, finally this situation did not concern nature.
Spring 2020, the third mildest since the beginning of the measurements in 1864, the vine has lived 40 days without rain and it has resisted very well.
Nature has lived through the summer and the temperature is almost 1°C above normal… it suffered a little dry and we worked on it with all our care. Vines have been subjected to few constraints and at the end of September we harvested (in sanitary version compatible for the grape pickers) gorgeous golden grapes… a small but “big” crop!
In our way of biological protection of the vine and its fruit, we work to give the grape a more resistant skin. Which leads us to have less juice and more flesh!
The 2020 is concentrated, dense, it took its time to “make itself” and we bottled the wines later to allow them to flourish at their own pace.
Our sincere thanks to our customers and friends for their “remote” support as well as our special thought to the restaurant and hotel owners who have been particularly affected during these last months. We look forward to welcoming you back to the winery for a tasting of the 2020 vintage.
Our winery is certified in organic cultivation by bio-inspecta, CH-BIO-006.

First vintage of our Cuvée Z, Pinot Noir, Dézaley Grand Cru AOC
Previously blended as part of our Le Treillant cuvée, this Pinot Noir is now vinified alone and has given birth to a new wine called “Cuvée Z”.
First vintage of a new rosé wine called Rosé de Saignée
This rosé is only proposed when the red wines have the necessary structure for "bleeding".
