PLOTS, TERROIR & VINEYARD MANAGEMENT
Degraded blue and gray shale, two plots facing South-West (Grenache Noir) and South (Mourvèdre).
Vines planted on the terrace, pruned in goblet, worked entirely by hand.
Average age of the vines: 80 years.
Vinification & aging process
Morning and partial harvest (thinning) of black grape varieties in 10 kg boxes, three weeks before the second harvest (intended for red wines) to preserve acidity and aromatic freshness.
Passage in cold room 48h.
Direct pressing in whole bunches and cold settling.
Slow fermentation at low temperature (15°C) in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats.
Aging on fine lees until bottling in the spring.
