Pascal Roblet can trace his roots in Volnay to the 1600s on his mother’s side and four generations on his fatherís side.
The majority of Domaine Roblet-Monnotís holdings are in Volnay (6 hectares), but there is a lone parcel in Pommard named, Arvelet. Pascalís conversion to biodynamic viticulture in 1997 along with his high density planting (12,000 vines per hectare) and very low yields (30-35 hectoliters per hectare) are part of what has transformed his domaine into one of the leading sources of wine from these communes
