The family Noellat Alain, Jean-Marc Noëllat, Sophie, and her cousin Sébastian are the 6th generation of the family responsible for the domaine – the eponymous Michel was their father (d.1989) and remains relatively unknown outside of France, mainly because only about 10% of the domaines production is exported.The vines are on average 40 years old. The work in the vineyards is ‘raisonée’, avoiding insecticides and herbicides. The harvested grapes are 100% destemmed before a short period of cool maceration and 18-20 days of fermentation. Rigorous debudding controls yields and harvest time is decided on by regularly checking the vineyards, periodic analysis and tasting the fruit. The grapes are harvesting manually, sorted and then taken to the winery in small crates to avoid crushing the fruit and causing premature oxidation. The wines are aged in French oak casks, with approximately 30% new casks for Village wines and 50% new casks for Premier Cru and Grand Cru wines. Bottling takes place after between 15 and 18 months of aging.
