Produced from 50-year-old vines in Clos de la Roche, one of the four Grands Crus of the Morey-Saint-Denis commune. 13.41 hectares (33 acres) is the total vineyard area of the Clos under production. Limestone dominates in the Clos de la Roche, where the soil is barely 30 cm. (12 inches) deep with few pebbles but with large boulders which give the climat its name.
Olivier Bernstein, a winemaker with a unique path, entered Burgundy’s winemaking world through choice rather than family tradition. His family’s background was in classical music, and his entrepreneurial spirit led him to follow his passion for wine. After studying viticulture, he acquired vineyards in Roussillon, then moved to Burgundy in 2007. He met his cellar master, Richard Seguin, in Gevrey-Chambertin. With a focus on old vines, Bernstein’s meticulous process spans about 30 months, allowing for no compromises. He acquired vines in prestigious locations, including Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru and Grand Cru Mazis-Chambertin. Today, Bernstein’s vineyards hold old vines, crucial for his acclaimed wines.
