Description

Eric is a star vigneron, based in the village of Vergisson, and currently has 4.8 hectares of vines planted between 1930 and 1979. He has inherited a great knowledge of nature and biodynamics from his grandfather and this has been a major influence in his approach to viticulture and winemaking. All grapes are hand picked and fermented and matured for ten to fifteen months in barriques and demi-muids. The wines are hand bottled and are, usually, unfiltered.

 

“Les Crays” is a terroir of limestone scree on blue Pliensbachian marl. This south-facing slope of the Vergisson rock, very bright and protected from the cool north wind, produces fatty wines with chiseled minerality and revealing rich and multiple citrus aromas. This cuvée is harvested on several plots planted between 1930 and 1966 forming 2.16 hectares in total. The resulting wines are full, rich and minerally with great length and aging potential.
