The Domaine is managed according to sustainable methods. The use of specific cultivation techniques aims to reduce the number of treatments by optimizing their position and efficiency. Environmental concerns are at the core of our approach and influence our work in the vineyards and the cellars. We are one of the few Maison’s in Burgundy to produce both our own wines and our own Crémants de Bourgogne. The grapes from a plot selection are harvested by hand then pressed slowly in our pneumatic wine press. The blends are created based on the terroirs the grapes came from, and the personalities we want these vintages to have. The effervescence is produced directly in the bottle and develops its finesse during long months of ageing in our cellars at a constant 16°C.
Produced by the traditional method. When the harvests arrive, we press the grapes slowly using our pneumatic wine presses. Only the first presses are used to produce our wines. Malolactic fermentation takes place in our 100% stainless steel vats. Secondary fermentation, in the bottle (according to the traditional method), is carried out by adding yeasts and sugar. This is followed by 18 months of ageing on lees in our temperature-controlled cellars.
Andre Delorme is a recognized specialist in the great wines from the Cote Chalonnaise and Cremants de Bourgogne. With links to each of the Cote Chalonnaise terroirs - Rully, Givry, Mercurey, Bouzeron, Montagny - it covers more than twenty appellations, which it selects, vinifies and ages in its cellars at Rully.
