DOMAINE LOUIS MAX – BURGUNDY

Domaine Louis Max – Burgundy

The Domaine Louis Max is located in Mercurey and Rully, in the South of Burgundy. Farmed 100% organically and certified by Ecocert, this Domaine is one of the largest organic Domaines in all Burgundy. The estate is the owner of the famous ‘Clos de la Marche’ monopoly. The Domaine covers 20 hectares and includes the following appellations: Mercurey Clos la Marche, red, Monopoly – Mercurey 1er Cru les Vasées red – Mercurey Les Caudroyes, white and red – Mercurey les Rochelles, white – Bourgogne Côte Châlonnaise Derrière Sazenay, red – Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise En Vesvre, white – Rully Les Plantenays, white.

 CLOS LA MARCHE – MONOPOLE

The Domaine is farmed organically and certified ECOCERT. In Burgundy, this type of viticulture requires event more attention than in other regions of France, because of the cold climate and humidity. Our Domaine manager, ably assisted by two full-time staff, has over 20 years of experience in Burgundy, all as an advocate of organic farming.. We only use natural resources, and minimal intervention viticulture (green harvest, horse ploughing,..), this means minimum impact and maximum respect for the environment. The vines are pruned using the guyot pruning, the traditional Burgundian method. It is a cane-pruned system with spurs and perfectly adapted to the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in Burgundy, because it allows for low yields and high quality in the densely planted vineyards (typically 10 000 vines per hectare).
