Benoit Ente's stylistic evolution has followed a similar trajectory to that of his elder brother Arnaud (who married into a Meursault family). Here it was the 2003 vintage that catalyzed a concerted effort to capture more freshness and purity that began its realization with the 2004 vintage. New oak and bâttonage began to be less and less employed, and acidity sought in preference to alcohol at harvest. Since 2012, new oak has been banished entirely, and the lees are only stirred to ward off excess reduction. Vinfication in stainless steel with ambient yeasts is followed by 12 months' élevage in classic Burgundian pièces, 600-liter demi-muids and foudres. The wines are then racked to tank where they rest on the fine lees for another six months before bottling.
