At the top of the Montrachet hill, is the climat of Murgers des dents de Chiens, which overlooks the grands crus.The combination of altitude and the poverty of the terroir creates a delicate wine, of great finesse, with a nose that combines white flowers and citrus notes. The palate, very tight, displays a beautiful substance, then lengthens into a slightly spicy finish.
The vines are farmed using biodynamic principles and following the moon calendar. Armand and his team are also introducing permaculture in the vineyard. The whites are vinified traditionally with minimal use of oak and batonnage. The reds are vinified in whole clusters. Pumping over rather than punching down for a soft extraction The wines are aged in oak barrels for 10 to 15 months with around 20% new oak. The wines are not fined or filtered.
