PLOTS, TERROIR & VINEYARD MANAGEMENT
Colombard from Argelès-sur-Mer: very deep, cool, sandy loam alluvium, along the river and 800 meters from the beaches.
Muscat d'Alexandrie from Cabestany: deep silty-clayey and stony soil formed by old alluvial deposits.
Average age of the vines: 10 years.
Vinification & aging process
Mechanical harvesting, at night to preserve the freshness and quality of the grapes.
Direct pressing and placing in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats.
Cold static settling.
Fermentation at low temperature (15°C) to preserve the aromatic bouquet of the Colombard and the muscat terpenes.
Fermentation stopped by cold at 10 g/L of residual sugars.
Bottling in the spring.
