Domaine Masson-Blondelet was founded by Michelle and Jean-Michel Masson in 1975 and they were joined by their two children, Mélanie and Pierre-François in 2000. Their seven generations of winemaking experience are brought to bear on a twenty-one hectare estate, which has been free of chemical fertilisers for forty years and free of herbicides and pesticides for over twenty.

Vineyard

The vineyard is located in the small village of Thauvenay and is planted on a complex mix of chalk, flint and Portlandian soils. The vines are thirty-three years old an only organic treatments are used.

Winery

After a period of cold settling, fermentation took place in stainless-steel tanks. The wine was given a long period of lees ageing but was not allowed to go through malolactic fermentation. Sulphur use is kept to the bare minimum.
