Domaine de la Cras
Originally from a non-wine growing family from the Jura, Marc Soyard worked for six years at Winery Bizot in Vosne Romanée as a vineyard manager. He also worked in the cellar with Jean-Yves Bizot to better understand the winemaking process. It is therefore only logical that Marc has adapted to Winery de la Cras the same natural philosophy learned at Winery Bizot. Thus, all the vines are cultivated organically with biodynamic practices.
Marc Soyard produced the first vintage at the Domaine de la Cras in 2014. The official appellation of Winery is Bourgogne AOC, but Winery de la Cras is the only producer authorized to use the Coteaux de Dijon designation. The Winery de la Cras produces two reds and two whites. The “Coteaux” cuvée comes from the lower altitude vineyards, while the “Cras” cuvée comes from the steeper, better exposed vineyards with a higher elevation. Marc Soyard also personally owns two small plots of pinot noir further south in the Côte d ‘ Or – vines of Bourgogne Rouge near Ladoix which he calls Hermaïon and a second plot of Hautes Côte de Nuits.
