The domain is your story from the XVII century, when in 1749 the Count de Grens castle was built, and 17 acres of land around it were broken vineyards. At present, the economy is managed by the 10 generation of the family, and the area is 50 hectares of vineyards, which are from Chambertin in the north to Chevalier-Montrachet in the south planted mostly for classic Burgundy grape varieties: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
