Cordon de Royat

Name (also short Cordon) for a since the end of the 19th century in France common education system (also short Cordon). These cordon was proposed by Lefèvre, the head of the French Agricultural College in Royat (Auvergne). At the same time, depending on the appellation, one or two cordons, each with four to six shoots, are trained on a short trunk, extending to the next vine. The system should be low yield and thus ensure better quality.

The system is next to Chablis, Guyot and Vallée de la Marne the fourth approved in the Champagne, There are very strict guidelines for this. It is mainly for Pinot Noir recommended. Only one cordon is allowed at the distance of at least 15 centimeters the shoots grow tall. Each shoot may 2 eyes have (at Chardonnay 3, the first is infertile). Also allowed is a shoot at the end, which actually represents an extension of the timber; this shoot may have up to 4 eyes (Chardonnay or Pinot Noir 5).
