Our vineyards are dispatched on 5 villages all close to each other: Volnay, Pommard, Meursaut, Monthélie, Saint Romain.
They are mainly composed of old vines that are more than 60 years old. The work approach into sustainable wine- growing can be compared to our ancestor’s work and is only made easier by the machines.
Earth labouring, grass laying, respecting the seasons, checking that each vine stock has the right amount of grapes are tasks that bring us to a continuous labour.
The lands that belonged to our ancestors’ are transmitted from generation to generation within the family.
A lot of manual labouring is still needed. Pruning work on every vine stock, disbudding, doing the first trimming are all guarantees of the accuracy of man’s work that contributes to the harmonious growth of every vine stock. The greatest reward after the grape harvesting is to have ripe grapes, healthy and with a nice texture.
The vineyards planted after the selection of the finest vine plants of the ancient time, called selection massale, are still producing.
The eldest vine still producing nowadays was planted in 1901 by my grandfather Adolphe PERRIN.
It gives us nice wine grapes that have been growing for more than a hundred years.
Our job is of good quality thanks to patience and observation.
Philippe LEHARDI’s choice in 1448 to keep only the quality of the Pinot Noir grape variety brings us to the culture of fine wines that have contributed to the respect and greatness of the great Burgundy wines.
The soils mainly composed of clay, with low slopes on which the vine starts rooting give small and well-ventilated wine grapes.
They will be picked by hand after having been observed several times and after the fruit has been tasted so that the most favourable date for the harvesting is chosen.
Wine tasting is an art to learn at a very early age.
