1

Coche: Vine Training & Replanting

70% Guyot, 30% Cordon de Royat - Cordon training produces smaller, more concentrated berries than Guyot
All vines are replanted via selection massale - no exceptions

2

Coche: Winemaking

Deeply traditional. Whole cluster for whites, destemming for reds, rough press means plenty of matter and nutrients to create spontaneous fermentations. Fermentation generally lasts 10-14 days, but may take up to 3-4 weeks. Full ML. Batonnage depending on vintage.

3

Coche: Oak treatment

High % of new french, especially for whites; 40% at fermentation. 18-22mos aging for whites, and 14-16mos for reds. Damy (Meursault) and François Frères (St Romain).

6

d’Angerville: farming philosophy

Biodynamic since 2009

7

d'Angerville: winemaking

Destemmed, 3-4 day cold soak followed by spontaneous fermentation.
20% new oak at maximum; d’Angerville generally buys 1-2 year old barrels to ensure that the barrel stock is principally made up of 1st and 2nd pass barrels.
Taransaud now; his father preferred François Frères.

9

Why is Clos des Ducs generally harvested last?

The harder, limestone-rich soil requires longer maturation.

10

What is the oak regimen for Leflaive’s Montrachet?

100% new (all other wines top at 30%). The parcel is .08ha, which yields 1-1.5 casks depending on vintage; when warranted by the yield, Leflaive will have a barrel custom-coopered to 310L.
