Domaine de Saint Siffrein is situated in the area the the North of the main town of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape Appellation.
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%.
The terroir is clavey-chalky with large rounded sun-warmed stones, which diffuse a gentle, providential heat that helps the grapes to mature.
For 35 years, we cultivate the vineyard with agriculture in an environmental friendly way.
Yield: 35 hl/ha.
