  • Size: 0.39 ha (0.96 ac)
  • Variety: Pinot Noir
  • Vine Age: Planted in 1952, 1976
  • Terroir: Gentle slope facing southeast. Soils are moderately deep, brown clay on limestone bedrock. 250-meters elevation.

  • Vinification: 100% de-stemmed, whole grape fermentation, indigenous yeast fermentation, 15% new oak, unfined, unfiltered.

The vines in the Lafarge parcel are approximately 65 years old. The vines are planted downslope to the east. Frédéric points out that the clay-rich soils of Les Mitans are surprisingly light and “springy” when stepped on, a factor he strongly attributes to biodynamic farming. He also believes that the final wine reflects this springiness in its freshness, femininity, and balance between clay and stone influences.
