White Wine





The Nicolle's Vézelay vineyard is located south of Yonne (Northern Bourgogne) on both sides of the Cure river. Vines in Vézelay have been present since the Gallo-Roman times. In the XVIIIth century, when it reached its peak, the vineyard was spread over 500 hectares. However, the phylloxera crisis in 1884 almost eliminated the vineyard entirely. In the late 1960's, only one or two hectares remained cultivated. In 1973, about ten winemakers started to relaunch the vineyard, which led to a new beginning until the AOC certification in 2017. Today, the planted surface represents 70 hectares. The vineyard is oriented south/south-east and is located between 190 and 330 meters high. The mean annual temperature is 10.7°C, with 732 mm of annual precipitations. The subsoil is composed of marls and limestone that were formed over 15 million years of the Jurassic period.
