Early 2000 - Purchase of vineyards of "La Mailloche"
1.45 hectares of vines were bought from the Duboz family. The vines are situated in "La Mailloche", one of the most clay dominated terroirs of Arbois. The older generation called it "mailloche" because the ground was so hard in summer. For us, this is a new terroir, a new flavor, a new approach starting with the first vintage.
The wine from this terroir will be bottled separately because it has such a strong typicity.
