Grown on a slope rich in stones with excellent drainage, covered with red mineral clay. Les Beaumonts is magnificently situated surrounding the south and west boundaries of Echezeaux Grand Cru. After strict pruning and a mid-season green harvest to control yields, the grapes are hand-picked in small boxes with hand-sorting at the vineyard and the winery to ensure only the finest grapes. Prefermentation cold maceration is followed by alcoholic fermentation at 28°C, with malolactic fermentation in barrels. Only natural yeast from the grapes is used and the wine is manually punched down and left to ferment in tanks for 21 to 28 days. The wine is aged in French oak barrels (30% new) for 15 to 18 months.
