Winemaking remains traditional from generation to generation, but there are modifications in each era. Hubert Lignier’s tools were rustic, temperature control was done by natural means rather than in a more controlled environment. Romain introduced a pre-alcoholic fermentation of 4-6 days with gentler extractions with decreased use of new oak, and brought in more modern tools. And a few years after the domaine was passed to Laurent, the domaine moved towards organic farming and went on the formal process for biodynamic certification in 2015, and he destalks the grapes and ages the wines in lightly toasted oak barrels which are only at most 20% new, offering wines that are extremely pure and elegant. Laurent aims to produce "authentic and sensual wines that express their own terroir”.
