Les Ménétrières is a 2 acre southeast-facing vineyard that borders the village of Fuissé. One third of the vines are 40 years old, one third are 20, and a third are 10 years old. The upper half of the vineyard is planted on shale, while the lower half is planted on pearly slabs. The soil is composed of alluvial deposits, a mix of deep silt and clay with few stones. The subsoil features streaks of limestone and limestone marls, while top layers are rich in stone-free limestone deposits and light marls. Fermentation takes place in oak barrels, of which 20% are new, and is followed by a period of six months’ aging on fine lees.
