  • The Vineyard

    • The Domaine de La Pierre Latine is made up of eight parcels distributed around the edge of the appellation of Yvorne and bounded by the foothills of the Vaud Alps. It is entirely west / southwest facing with steep slopes of up to 35-40%, which allows good natural land drainage.

    • Altitude

      410 to 600 meters

    • Position

      west/southwest

    • Soil

      rich in alluvium, sediment, scree and gravel, on an alpine limestone bedrock

    • Cépage

      Pinot Noir, average age 35 years. Pruning: taille longue (Guyot)

    • Cultivation

      minimal chemical intervention.

  • The Winery

    • The grapes are picked by hand at peak maturity and carefully sorted in the vineyard. After destemming, and pressing the grapes undergo a short, cold, maceration (a few days). Fermentation temperatures are controlled at 28-29°C and fermentation lasts an average of 3 to 4 weeks. The wine is aged in French oak (50% new) for around 12 months before blending and then, after a light filtration, the wine is bottled.

    • Format

      Bottles (75cl), half bottles (37.5cl)
      For larger sizes please contact the Domaine at the beginning of the year.
