Very concerned about his historical but also fragile terroir, The Domaine Passy Le Clou focuses on its soils and wildlife preservation. Implementing sustainable agricultural methods, the domain is High Environmental Value level 3 certified (HEV3) (higher level)
HEV covers four key areas :
– Biodiversity conservation
– Water resource management
– Plant protection strategy
– Managed fertilizer use.
So for instance :
– We preserve our soils thanks to surface tillage to avoid using herbicides. This practice enhances our soil’s aeration, its structure and improves water conservation.
– We also planted natural hedges in the vineyard to stimulate biodiversity.
-We sow natural fertilizers, ground cover in the row middles…
All this environment-friendly work ends up in our wines, bringing them liveliness and complexity. Our values are to produce wines of exception, qualitative, by limiting the yields and by taking good care of our soils.
The winery presents modern production equipment, essential to making great Chablis wines.
