Roblet-Monnot Bourgogne Pinot Noir Vieilles Vignes
Pascal Roblet can trace his roots in Volnay to the 1600,s on his mother’s side and four generations on his father’s side. All of Domaine Roblet-Monnot’s holdings are in Volnay, 6 hectares. Pascal’s conversion to bio-dynamic viticulture in 1997 along with his high density planting, 12,000 vines per hectare, and very low yields, 30-35 hectoliters per hectare, are part of what has transformed his domaine into one of the leading sources of wine from these communes.
- Half from the area of Volnay and half from the area of Pommard with soils of more clay than limestone planted to 12,000 vines/hectare.
- Roblet has been gradually replanting the domaine with most of his new planting at the very high density of 12,000 vines per hectare. In most of Burgundy, 5,000 vines per hectare is considered normal and 10,000 is considered high density. Trellising is Guyot and cordon Royat.
- Annual production is 1200 bottles.
- The vines are biodynamically farmed.
- Traditional vinification is used.
- 100% destemmed prior to fermentation.
- The wine sees 16 to 18 months ageing in oak casks, of 1, 2 and 3 year old barrels.
- Bottled non-filtered.
