About the winery: At the helm of family estate since 1997 is third generation vigneron Bruno Lorenzon who is assisted by his sister Caroline. Bruno is considered to be a leading vigneron from the Mercurey crafting wines at a level rivaling those of great producers of the north in the Cote d'Or. The domaine, which is located in the village of Mercurey in Cote Chalonnaise has 4.5ha of vineyards planted in approximetly 85% Pinot Noir and 15% Chardonnay. As much as 90% of the these vineyards are located in 1er Cru appellations of Mercurey and Montagny. Bruno meticulously farms his vineyards in accordance to the viniculture practice of lutte raisonnee (reasoned struggle). Considered close to organic farming, this practice adovcates for the nonreliance of chemicals in grape growing. As a result, all vines are treated without any synthetic chemicals. Additionally, yeilds are always kept low and harvesting is done by hand in small crates. From his experience in the cooperage business, Bruno is apt at selecting the type of barrels that would be approriate for each cuvee and their repective vintage. Of course, he remains a firm believer that oak should never stand out in his wines. The resulting wines from the domaine are pure, elegant, possessing beautiful finesse and the subtleties characteristic of their specific terrior.
