Domaine Glantenay is located in Volnay, 3 miles south of the other famous city of Beaune, in the heart of Burgundy. Founded during the 16th century, Domaine Glantenay has been kept in the family for six generations and it is now Guillaume, son of Pierre Glantenay, who runs the estate along with his sister, Fanny. Today the 20-acre estate includes vineyards in Volnay, Pommard, Meursault, Monthelie and Chambolle-Musigny.
The Domaine uses sustainable viticulture in order to respect the nature and preserve the notion of terroir for each vineyard in each “appellation”. The Soil is regularly plowed to encourage the roots to go deeper in search of nutrients. The harvest in entirely done by hand and sorted tables are systematically used at the winery to insure the pristine quality of the grapes.
The “vinification” winemaking process, lasts 3 to 4 weeks in temperaturecontrolled vats. The reds are then aged for 15 months in French oak barrels. On average 30%-40% new oak barrels are used for the ageing. The bottling is done exclusively by gravity to preserve the wine’s integrity.
The Domaine is focused on the finesse and elegance of its wines while letting the Terroir express itself.
