Age of Vines: 5-15 years
Yields: 18-25 hl/ha
Soil: Clay and limestone
Varieties: This wine is a field blend of as many as 30 grape varieties, many of which are unknown.
Vinification Method: The grapes are hand-harvested, destemmed and gently pressed. Only natural yeasts are used and the juice undergoes an extended maceration. Vinified in barrel and then aged for 30 months in oak.
All the complexity that biodiversity can provide a wine. Racines is Claude’s attempt at creating a wine the way Burgundy was made a hundred years ago, from many different varieties. Racines is a rediscovery, a realization of what great wine once was!
