Application of the preparation 500

  • 18 April 2023
Springtime is in full swing, the energy is mounting, and the earth is gradually getting warmer. The first buds are breaking, and the vines are now entering their vegetative cycle.
Once again, it is the all-important time to apply the preparation known as ‘500P’ in biodynamic jargon!

We developed ours in accordance with best practices and sprayed it within two hours of the ascending moon period to vitalise and prime our soils. The entire team of the domain was actively involved."

The first step involved the recovery of rainwater and its double filtration. Next, the horn manure substrate was dosed into 150 litres at a temperature of 37 °C. And finally, an hour long stirring process was carried out through the rotary movement of the propeller in our copper dynamiser.

This rotation creates a life-giving alternation of vortices and chaos giving water a pulse and reinforcing its energising effect!

Finally, we reach the moment of grace. All electromagnetic wave sources are warded off and, in a seamless dance with nature, during a near meditative walk, we pulverise our dynamised water over eight rows with a copper backpack sprayer using broad sweeping movements.

It’s 4:30 p.m., the temperature is around 16-17 °C, there is absolutely no wind and a little humidity… Ideal conditions. It feels as if time has come to a standstill…

Right here in our oldest vineyard, the Charmes-Chambertin, a Grand Cru unlike any other.
