The tradition of white Clos de la Maréchale had been lost for over fifty years, but a few exceptional bottles found at the bottom of the cellar convinced us to resurrect this rare wine. So, since the 2005 vintage, Clos de la Maréchale has been available in both colours.

To recreate a Chardonnay grape variety that would produce the quality of a mature vine in its first year, we opted for a technique that is rare in Burgundy, known as grafting.

Instead of uprooting it, this technique involves leaving the old vine (in this case pinot noir) planted and inserting a bud from another grape variety (in this case chardonnay) under the bark of its trunk. Within a few weeks, this bud will fuse with the wood of the old vine, feed on its sap and develop to produce fruit the following year.

This delicate technique requires intense, meticulous work in the first year, but immediately gives the young plant the roots of an adult vine and the corresponding grape quality.

We have grafted around 6,000 plants, which produce 2 to 3,000 bottles a year.


Clos de la Maréchale white stands out from the great whites of the Côte de Beaune for its great minerality, its aromas combining pear and exotic fruit, its great power and a certain nervousness, a guarantee of longevity.
