Les Greves is perfectly located on the heart of the midslope of Beaune. The lieu dit's name is a reference to the gravely soil and possibly also derived from the word “graves” (serious) for the intensity of the rocks found in the soil. Genot-Boulanger's parcel was planted in parts during the 1960s and 1980. It is 1.04 hectare in size and is located mid-slope where the grade is the steepest.
The fermentations start with native yeast and are done in stainless steel tanks for 20 to 25 days. Extractions are always gentle with the number of punchdowns and pumping over adjusted to the conditions of the vintages and the terroir. The Pinot Noirs are aged for 12 months in oak barrels, with around 20% new oak before being aged for another six months in vats before bottling. The red wines are neither fined nor filtered.
