The Domaine Robert Groffier located far south of the village of Morey St-Denis, on the border of Chambolle-Musigny, has its headquarter, the house, the fermenting room and the cellar. The wine history of Groffier family begins in 1950, when Robert inherited the land from his father Jules; currently the management is in cohabitation between the son and grandson Nicolas Serge. The Domaine Robert Groffier boasts 8 hectares of vineyards including the famous 1er Cru Les Amoureuses, Les Sentiers and Grand Cru Bonnes Mares and Chambertin Clos de Bèze. In the vineyard herbicides have been forbidden since 2005, while since 1995 the training system Cordon de Royat has replaced the Guyot, this operation reduces the yields and risks of diseases. The vineyard treatments are limited and only in exceptional occasions are recalled; the Groffier fact prefer to use one-off products against diseases rather than systematically and continuously Copper and sulfur. In the cellar there are no strict winemaking protocols. Annually they decide on the use or not of the stalks, for example in 2004 and 2007 the grapes were fully destemmed while in 2005 they had an utilization of 20% whole bunches. The grapes are transferred in steel containers, where, with the use of only native yeasts, the alcoholic fermentation takes place which is activated in 4-5 days. The "pigeage" are short and frequent and occasionally may be carried Remontage. The total duration of the maceration is about 20 days, after which the wines are aged in wooden casks of variable age according to the wine content.
