The cellars and winery are located in the center of the village of Aloxe-Corton in a beautiful and remarkable setting.
The beautiful homestead, built in 1764, is typical Burgundy architecture, housing the first and second floors, store and winery level, and cellars in the basement.
The cellars, certainly the deepest of the village, are particularly cold and wet. A well has also been dug there.
These conditions certainly sometimes a little spartan for tasting, are particularly beneficial against the development and breeding of fine wines.
