Côte de Beaune
Domaine Bernard Moreau delivers their red grapes to the winery in 15 kilo baskets. Initially, the grapes were transferred to a sorting table and 100% de-stemmed. Fermentation was done with as many whole berries as possible, but now Alex is experimenting with 30-40% whole cluster (with stems) for 1er Cru Chassagne Montrachet rouge and his Volnays. Oddly enough, this makes the wines more delicate, not more rustic. Wines from Caillerets display a deep rich aroma and minerality in flavor. Only 5 barrels are produced.
