Chateau de Melin Maranges 1er cru Clos des Rois
In the heart of the vineyards, 12 km southwest of Beaune, the tall slate roof towers of the Château overlook the hamlet bearing the same name: Melin. Built in 1551 by the Rozereau family, it was aquired in 1999 by its present owners, Hélène and Arnaud Derats, who restored the chateau and also acquired the family winery, which includes 22 hectares of vineyards located in Côtes de Beaune and Côtes de Nuit regions. In 2000, Arnaud Derats educated as an Engineer and following a 10-year career in the construction industry, was captured by tradition: with his wife Hélène, they bought the Château de Melin, located on the town of AuxeyDuresses, and decided to settle the family estate vineyards. The Château de Melin currently operates 25 hectares of vineyards and produces 22 appellations: 20 in the Côtes-de-Beaune and 2 in the Côtes-de-Nuits areas.
The vinification process , the aging and bottling of the wines is accomplished in our cellars at the Château. The vineyards have been organic farmed since 2009. No pesticides, herbicides, nor chemicals. Alternatively, organic farming entails soil cultivation thru plowing, grass cutting and exclusive use of natural sulfur and copper as treatment against diseases on the vines. The ultimate goal is to obtain good quality grapes, evoking the best the Burgundy soil has to offer. Ecocert certified Organic since 2012.
