Isabelle and Jean-Yves Vantey began Domaine des Rouges-Queues with 1ha of vines in the appellation of Maranges in 1998. Today, they farm 6ha of certified biodynamic vineyards in Maranges, Santenay, and the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune. All fruit is harvested by hand and fermented spontaneously in a combination of stainless steel and open-top wood fermenters. The wines are aged for 11-12 months in used barrel and may be bottled without SO2 if the conditions allow. To us, these wines embody everything that we hope to represent: excellent farming, little to no intervention in the cellar, with the resulting wines tasting pure and alive, but also possessing a sense of place and character of the vintage.
