It is [a] radically different approach that propelled the domaine to nestle amongst the great domaines of Burgundy. At [one] time, 90% of the region’s wines were sold to negociants, who mades wines that could be described as stylistically standardized, the ‘little’ domains began to make wine that was radically different. Their idea was to revitalize this very particular Burgundian notion called ‘terroir.’ Each appellation, each ‘climat’ (a small parcel of land, sometimes even smaller than an appellation), that the monks classified and cultivated for over a millennia, gives a wine its distinct personality. Étienne [who runs the Domaine] explains, ‘Above all my father looked to respect the authenticity of each of his terroirs by making wines of moderate alcohol, elegance and refined aromatic purity.’
