from father to son
A shared history
The Bott family have been passionate winegrowers since 1835.
This long attachment to the terroir where they were born is passed on from father to son, along with their skills and experience.
This combination of an exceptional terroir, high quality grape varieties and hard-won expertise has turned the story of the generations of one family into a remarkable adventure.
Vinification : a rigorous art
Manual harvests and slow, gentle pressing, using a pneumatic press with the juices draining by gravity, are combined with more elaborate technology to enable perfect control at every stage of the vinification process.
The use of casks or temperature-controlled stainless steel vats enable gentle regulation of fermentation, followed by maturing on fine lees, to give the wines more complexity and aromas.
Plot-by-plot vinification enables the production of our various ranges: from Crémants to our Réserve Personnelle and Tradition selections, not forgetting our Grands Crus, Vendanges Tardives (late-harvest) and Sélection de Grains Nobles, each range is meticulously vinified and matured to give the wines finesse.
