We're All About Terroir
20 HECTARES, 7 SINGLE PLOT WINES
Clos Marey‑Monge is a collection of different micro-climates and soil types. Each of our seven terroirs – Simone, Nicolas-Joseph, Grands Esprits, Chantrerie, 75 Rangs, Micault, and Émilie – is a different composition of limestone, iron-rich clay, alluvium and other minerals essential to Pinot Noir. Centuries of savoir-faire contribute to our knowledge of how to get the most from each plot and produce a blend that reveals the complexity of our wines each year.
Our Flagship Cuvée
20 HECTARES, 7 PLOTS, 1 BLEND
The Château de Pommard Clos Marey-Monge Monopole is our vineyard’s signature wine: a terroir-driven organic blend that our winemaker, Emmanuel Sala, adjusts with each vintage to showcase the microclimate of Burgundy’s largest monopole.
150 Million Year Old Soils
Clos Marey-Monge sits on top of the Avant-Dheune Valley dejection cone, a geological structure that allows even greater Pinot Noir growing conditions to flourish. The cherished terroir of Pommard, and its 27 identified climats, have been cultivated and carefully preserved for thousands of years by the many protectors of the land. But it is the 150 million year history of the earth and dirt beneath these famed soils that has contributed most to Clos Marey-Monge’s enduring popularity.
Made by Nature
Five years ago, we began our collaboration with Nature in Clos Marey‑Monge. The opportunity to create a biodynamic ecosystem in a 20-hectare clos surrounded by a two-meter-high stone wall was too significant not to try. What we have witnessed is incredible. Our soils are alive. One-hundred-year-old vines that were bearing little fruit are producing good yields. Producing better tasting wines and preserving the world all of us depend upon is a powerful idea whose time has come.
Our end goal is to produce wines that are respectful of our planet while preserving the resources and the soils for our children and grandchildren.
