Mademoiselle Francoise Choppin delivered the property control over to Geoffrey (her nephew) and his wife Marie-Odile Choppin during the 1999 harvest and they have had full control since the 2000 vintage. With much diligent and hard work the estate has surged in quality from an already high level.
This estate is widely considered one the finest red wine estates in Beaune. It is often the last estate to harvest demanding perfectly ripe skins and implements a severe green harvest every vintage. In 2000 the estate purchased a vibrating sorting table for an even stricter triage of the fruit that will be used. The estate now uses a pneumatic press and conducts a 3-4 day cold maceration prior to a 15-18 day fermentation in wooden vats. All of the vineyards owned are Premier Crus and include Aigrot, Bressandes, Cent Vignes, Toussaints, Teurons, Marconnets and Savigny Les Beaune Vergelesses La Bataillere.
