This wine is made from vines on the southeastern edge of the alluvial fan, “Combe de Lavaux.” The upper part of the “Vignes Blanches” vineyard has a high proportion of limestone, transitioning into deeper clay soils toward the bottom of the plot.
Biodynamic farming (and certified organic) using the lunar calendar. For Pascal, farming is about respecting nature intuitively, not dogmatically. Yields are kept low by de-budding. All of Domaine Maume’s premier cru and grand cru parcels are now worked by horse and plow. The harvesters pick in small batches and transport the grapes in 17-kg cases to preserve their integrity.
