Growing Conditions

This wine draws its unique character from the soils rich in Kimmeridgian marl and shells, as well as from the clay-limestone soils rich in trace elements. The vines, on average 25 years old, are exposed to the south and southwest, and their cultivation respects nature with controlled grassing by hoeing to preserve biodiversity. Vine management includes 2 to 3 trimmings and leaf thinning to optimize their vitality.


Machine harvested


After harvest, the berries are treated delicately to preserve their oenological potential. Destemming is adapted to the maturity of the stalks. A cold maceration at 6°C concentrates the noble components of the grape. Alcoholic fermentation lasts 20 days in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats with daily pumping over for better oxygenation and extraction of tannins. Pneumatic pressing is gentle and slow, preserving the structure of the wine. Malolactic fermentation takes place in the spring. Underground aging lasts 12 months, followed by light filtration before bottling in June-July.
