Olivier Bernard and his team have undertaken to make this wine one of the jewels of the Pessac-Léognan appellation, with an outstanding potential.
In order to do so, they use the same methods as the finest great growths: ploughing the soil; sustainable viticulture; plot-by-plot vineyard management; hand picking and careful sorting of grapes; grape transfer by gravity into small 50-80 hectolitre fermentation vats; finely-tuned extraction; malolactic fermentation; ageing in barrel on lees, and so on.
Manual harvest before pressing, no skin contact.
Fermentation in oak barrels on fine lees with batonnage. No malolactic fermentation.
10 months in barrel
