Vincent and Francois Bitouzet rigorously tend their vineyards, practicing organic viticulture that includes practices such as “sexual confusion” to reduce insect infestations, the use of organic compost when necessary, no herbicides or pesticides and severe limitations on the use of copper sulfate. Harvest is done manually. Classic Burgundian vinification is practiced at this traditional domaine.
This 1.2 hectare parcel is from the lieu-dit “Petits Pres” which sits immediately beneath the village appellation “Volnay Les Pasquieres”. The vines were planted in three separate tranches: 1963, 1969 and 1970.
