Philippe and Etienne Delarche run a family estate of 9 hectares in the villages of Pernand-Vergelesses and Aloxe-Corton. The harvest is hand-picked and the wines made in the traditional manner. Half of the Domaine produces Pinot noir, with whites (Aligoté and Chardonnay) taking up the other half. Access by tractor is difficult on portions of the estate, so horses are used where necessary.
