Arriving in the estate in 2014, Alix Millot started wine-making on her own in 2016. Since then, she perpetuates the family values of respect of the terroir instilled by her father.
The vine is worked organically (non-certified) with limited yields. Alix is committed to the traditional methods of wine producing and is deeply committed in the respect of the typicity of the climates.
During vinification, grapes are preserved with little extraction and no use of intrants. Only the natural yeasts of the grapes are used.The wine production is then made in barrels of Burgundy oak trees.
Alix also got inspired by the new generation of winemakers. She shares, exchanges, tastes and adapts to wines without automation.
She knows every vintage is unique and that the work is largely achieved in the vine. Her role is to allow the grapes to reveal themselves.
The estate grows today with cuvées of natural wines, sulfur-free and vinified with entire grapes (Aligoté, Côte de Nuits “Le Vaucrain” and Passetoutgrain “Les Autrots”). These wines, initially without very much fame, now enjoy a great notoriety.
