Céline Gormally, who created her domain in 2008, lives by the saying from Saint Exupery “The earth is not ours; but lent to us by our children.”  This rings true in all facets of how she manages her land. A woman with a spring in her step, she manages around 5ha of vines with the help of her husband Steve. The fields, as she calls them, are maintained without herbicides or pesticides. Using biodynamic principles and compost as fertilizer she eschews mechanised methods and distributes it all with donkeys between the vines. All wines use wild fermentation with very little sulphur, if any. Some whole bunch pressing for the whites and fully de-stemmed treatment for the reds.  Whites sit on their fine lees in old Meursault barrels from Burgundy with a scattering of demi-muid, usually for the more delicate wines. Production is around only 10,000 bottles a year!
