Sourced from esate vineyards north of Volnay and Pommard, the fruit is picked early to give freshness and acidity. Natural yeasts are employed alongside no fining or filtration in the winemaking process. Bright, lifted aromatic red fruits on the nose that flow into crunchy red cherry, spice, and savoury notes on the palate, encompassed by mid palate acidity that drives the long finish.
The Domaine Henri Delagrange, in Volnay, Côte d'Or, owns fourteen and a half hectares of vines in the best situations in Côte de Beaune. The family business is run by Didier Delagrange, vine grower and wine maker, who produces high quality Burgundy wines.
The family Domaine has been in existence for more than six generations. From 1978, it included the vines of Gisèle Verdereau and Henri Delagrange who then worked 6 hectares, mainly in Volnay and Pommard. Didier joined the business in 1990, after completing his viticulture studies, and worked with his parents until 2003. During these years together, they planted the Bourgognes Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Blancs (first vines planted in 1990) and the Bourgognes Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Rouges (first vines planted in 1999). The Domain then covered thirteen and a half hectares.
From 2003, Didier has been on his own at the head of the Domaine with his wife, Hélène. The area planted with vines was expanded again with 65 acres of Aloxe Corton 'Les Caillettes " in 2004 and 45 acres of Meursault in 2005, and now covers fourteen and a half hectares.
The Domain has adopted sustainable cultivation methods to preserve the natural interaction between the vines and the land.
