Harvests and winemaking

After hand-picking with plastic crates and a first selection of the grapes in the vineyard, these arrive in the winery
where they are destalked and carefully sorted once more. Fermentation is carried out in temperature controlled “tronconiques” stainless-steel tanks 10 to 20 days. Barrels are filled just after the running off and malolactic fermentation in them. The wine is aged from 15 to 18 months, depending of the
vintage, in French oak barrels, 80% of which are new.

The property originally had 8 hectares but has gradually enlarged by the purchase of plots with high quality potential to extend on 16 hectares today.
