Pruning in one of the four parcels of Chablis Premier Cru Côte de Léchet
Pruning in one of the four parcels of Chablis Premier Cru Côte de Léchet

Apart from our oldest vines, where the roots have become too big to shred the vine shoots, the woods from pruning are shred and incorporated in the soil in order to restore their organic material and favorise the microbionic life of the soils. In doing this we avoid burning them without using their value. The old woods, potentially carrier of diseases, are put apart and shred by a service provider to feed industrial boilers.

The cold has finally found its way to Burgundy! To keep warm we started to yield 1 of 4 parcels of Chablis Héritage in La Chapelle-Vaupelteigne. The roots of these vines are very tight which is why we can't broil them and the vine roots are burned straightaway.
