The Rodez family has been growing grapes in Ambonnay since 1757 (more than nine generations) and their 6.5 ha of Grand Cru Ambonnay vineyards are planted with 62% Pinot Noir, 38% Chardonnay. Eric trained and worked at Krug before taking the reins of the family domaine, converting first to organic viticulture, then to biodynamic.
In the cellars, vinifinication takes place in stainless steel, with the final year of ageing being in wood. Rodez relies heavily on reserve wines and often uses five to ten different vintages in his final blend. Eric strives always to learn more about terroir, and his son Mickael is the driving force towards single vineyard cuvées. Together the Rodezs' attention to detail and drive to always learn more about terroir produces wines of incredible depth, texture and beauty, that give a glimpse in to the secret character of Ambonnay.
