Located in Bulligny, a small village in Lorraine, about 30 kilometres southwest of Nancy (close to Toul), the “Maison CROCHET” is a family winery working almost 5 hectares of vines.
We offer a wide and varied range of wines that we produce from the 4 grapes grown on the vineyard. Sparkling wines in traditional methods represent most of our production. The wines (grey, white and red) are more confidential but still in their typicality and reflect the unique terroir of Bulligny.
Independent by conviction, “la Maison Crochet” produces wines without a geographical Indication. We set our own rules to allow us to develop the best wines as possible.
Autonomous, all stages of production are carried out by our own means. Each wine comes from our grapes and parcels that have benefited from the quality of the house.
“No good wines without fine grapes”
A good Winemaker is a winemaker who adapts his cultural practices according to the soil and the vintage.
- 85% of the winery is without weeding.
- Tillage, grassing allows the grapes to draw the best of each soil while creating a microclimate conducive to optimum fruit maturation. Manual work during the vegetative period is treated (because prophylaxis is the best remedy for fungal diseases) *.
- The yields are adapted according to the type of wine produced on each plot.
- The grape harvest is manual to preserve the integrity of the grapes until the press and to allow a careful sorting during the difficult vintages.
Each parcel of ourvineyard is vinified separately to allow the terroir to express itself and to offer a varied aromatic palette during the assemblies.
- The pressing is neat and split to draw the purity of the juices.
- Sulfitages and filtration are moderate to allow the wine to express itself. Our wines do not want to be “natures” or “technological”.
- Our quest is that of different wines having their own authenticity resulting from a symbiosis between the local soil, the Lorraine climate and the Man.
