Winemaking:

The grapes are harvested by hand with a selection of the best grapes.

The grapes are partially destemmed, slighty crushed and placed in a fermentation concrete tank.

Long vatting time at controlled temperature from 21 days, with pumping-over and punching of the cap to obtain a reasoned extraction of tannins.

Maturing is done during 12 months on oak casks (45 hl) for 50 % and in tanks for 50%.

Terroir:

The terroir is clavey-chalky with large rounded sun-warmed stones, which diffuse a gentle, providential heat that helps the grapes to mature.
