Renovation of our cellars continues

The renovation of the Domaine's cellars and winery continues.

After the "cuvage" where we produce the wine, we are renovating the main and historical building of the Domaine, place du Pasquier de la Fontaine. The objective here is also to make the "grands crus" ageing cellars, the most passive possible combining maximum insulation and using the natural hygrometry of the soils.

Insulation works are delicate as the cellars have to guarantee a constant temperature between 10 and 14ºC, a minimum level of humidity of 75% throughout the year in a serene atmosphere (without noise, nor vibration). As the water table is particularly high in Puligny, all the cellars have to be built above ground and always with natural materials according to the Domaine's philosophy.
