The vineyard, grape varieties and cellar
A winery planted mainly in Chasselas, the emblematic grape of Lavaux.
VINEYARDS WHOSE TERRACES ARE CLASSIFIED AS A UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE.
The Domaine du Burignon has 6 hectares of vineyards, land that nourishes and matures a large part of Chasselas, this white varietal appreciated for its minerality. The southern slopes of Lavaux facing the Lake allow this exceptional vineyard to benefit, it is said, of three Suns: the direct rays, the reflection of the Sun on the Lake and the nocturnal refraction of the heat by the walls of the terraces.
The Burignon vineyards also make a beautiful part of new specialties: Malbec, Viognier, Cabernet franc, and even Merlot. These wines are all vinified in the winery of the Domaine, in large wooden barrels for Chasselas and part of the Pinot Noir. The specialties are raised in oak barrels. The wines of the Burignon are beautifully suited to ageing.
A REASONED CULTURE
The Lausanne wine team applies to innovate. At the Domaine du Burignon, 6000 m2 of Chasselas estate are classified as first Grand Cru. This selection, a characteristic of Vaud, is a distinction obtained thanks to a way of working the vine particularly demanding, sanctioned by expert checks and tastings. The result, Le Chasselas Roches-plates du Burignon is a wine of great finesse, perfectly adapted to the gastronomy. The vineyard is mainly treated with organic products. Part of the test has been tested without weeding since 2012.
