The Pinot Noirs are harvested in small boxes, in order to preserve the berries. After passing through a sorting table, the grapes are destemmed and then placed in vats for a period of 12 to 20 days. After pressing, the wine is aged in barrels for one year, 15% of which is new wood, and 2 to 3 months in vats, before being bottled by gravity, depending on the lunar calendar.
Rodolphe Demougeot created his estate in 1992, in Meloisey, in the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune. His winegrower grandparents, whom he often accompanied in the field, gave him a taste for working the land. It begins with 3 hectares, in the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune, in Pommard and Beaune. The estate now covers almost 8 hectares, with plots acquired over the years in the municipalities of Savigny-les-Beaune, Monthelie and Meursault, where Rodolphe has been established since 1998.
A discreet winegrower who listens to his plots, Rodophe Demougeot has chosen sustainable pest management and applies many principles borrowed from organic farming.
