The vineyards that grow the Gamay grapes used for this Beaujolais Villages are contiguous with the vineyards of Morgon and similarly their soils are a granite substrate covered by a sandy topsoil.

The vines are pruned in the traditional gobelet style and Didier practices sustainable viticulture, avoiding the use of herbicides and pesticides. All of the grapes are hand harvested to keep the bunches whole so that the fermentation can be started using the typical carbonic maceration technique. Each area of vines is harvested separately and the grapes are vinified in their own cement tanks, allowing the parcels to express their distinct terroir before being carefully blended into the best possible final wine.
