The Château de Cîteaux
It is necessary to go back to 1098 to discover the origins of the Château de Cîteaux, when the abbot Robert de Molesme decided to build an abbey in Cîteaux. Until the French Revolution, the running of the domain was by lay brother monks.
The winemaking activity still continues today, thanks to the “Vieux Clos” vineyard surrounding the château. The Cistercian cellars of the château are the oldest in Burgundy, with a surface area of more than 600 m2 are ideal for vinification.
