A selection of the best plots from our estate : terraced vines at an altitude of 300m on the southern slopes of the Pic Saint-Loup, unique in the area.
Of the Mesozoic era, hard limestone from a long sedimentation (100 million years) following a complete immersion of the Jurassic, poor and uncultivated soil up until modern day.
Harvested by hand during the day and placed in crates, the grapes are sorted and de-stemmed in the cellar. The alcoholic fermentation is temperature controlled (25°C max). Daily extraction and homogenization operations take place: pumping-over, rack and return, cappunching.
Total vat time is one month. Devatting and pressing of the pulp.
Aged in French oak barrels (Tonnellerie Bordelaise, Taransaud, Saury, Laf te…) 2/3 new wood, for 12 to 16 months.
Black robe : the black expresses its depth. Superb tears. A nose of fresh fruit preserves.
Silky and gourmet on the palate.
