A very "Vigneron" Beaune 1er Cru

TERROIRS

The name Coucherias originates from the fact that the vineyard is exposed West so facing the sun sets. It was planted in the 1950s. The plot is situated on a soil that is constituted of clay and lime stone, and that is very steep. It is divided into two sub-islets, the smallest being a former quarry. The soil is very clayey and red, which gives a dense texture to this wine’s tannins. The “Clos” is isolated by trees and broom which is a rare plant in Burgundy. The plot has been cultivated with biodynamical practices since its origins in 1985.
