Christophe ages his Pinot noir in oak barrels, caring for the purity to avoid the vegetal taste of lees which is too often found in Red Burgundy wines.
It was the Catholic monks that really established the vineyards in the Middle Ages. They grew the grapes for the church and the aristocratic Dukes of Burgundy. The Cistercians then expanded the vineyard area and refined winemaking techniques. They knew before anyone else that quantity was the enemy of quality.
