Domaine Cécile Tremblay in a few words
Domaine Cécile Tremblay now grows 9.88 acres out of the 17.3 acres of the family estate, located in several areas, from Nuits Saint Georges to the grand cru areas of Echezeaux and Chapelle Chambertin. She has adopted eco-friendly practices for the whole vineyard (certified by Ecocert). The soils are ploughed mechanically and with a horse. A reasonable use of pest treatments, using copper sulfate to prevent against mildew and other fungi parasites. Usually treatments are complemented with liquid manures (or herbal teas) to reinforce copper action.
The pruning varies according to the vineyard plots, either short cane pruning (young vines) or spur pruning (old vines), so as to control the yields and produce great wines. A thorough debudding is done at spring time.
A little history

In 1950, the vineyard was shared amongst 5 children. Renée, their youngest daughter, put her share under metayage system (crop-sharing).
Her only daughter, Marie Annick, and her husband expanded the estate in 1986 while keeping it under metayage system until 2002. After studying wine, their daughter Cécile decided to take over the family vineyard. Thus Domaine Cécile Tremblay was born, on Jannuary 1st 2003.
