Didier Montchovet created his biodynamic vineyard in ’84. He leased a modest half a hectare not too far from Pommard, where he five years later added an additional two and a half more hectares that enabled him to begin making wine under his own name. In ’90 Didier sold his first bottling, today Didier works 9.2-hectares of biodynamic vines near the village of Bouze-les-Beaune, which is approximately 4-kilometers northwest of Beaune. The cellar was conceived to make maximum use of gravity, as a result, no pumps are used during the bottling process. Didier also has a system that recuperates rainwater, helping him conserve this natural resource during the spring and summer. Didier is committed to making outstanding Biodynamic wines and the results of his efforts are a vibrant testimony to the harmony that can exist between winemaker and nature.
