Overview

When Alexandre and Blandine settled in Vézelay in 2016, they purchased are promising site called Côte Chauffour, which had been cleared but was unplanted. While they are waiting for these vines to come of age, they have also acquired other sites, most notably Les Saulniers and Bouriats. Their village Vézelay will always include Chardonnay from the east bank of the river Cure for its fruit-forward expression blended with Chardonnay from the west bank, which is more vertical and mineral.
