Age of the vines
35 years on average.
Calcareous clay dating back to the Late Jurassic, comprised of 2/3 Kimmeridgian (marls characterized by small, fossilized oysters approximately 145 million years old) and 1/3 Portlandian (formations that are superimposed over the Kimmeridgian epoch, approximately 135 million years old).
Grass is grown in most of the vineyards and the soil is ploughed and hoed out of respect for our terroirs and the environment.
Disbudding and green harvest eliminate excess vegetation and regulate yields.
45 to 55 hl/ha.
Vinification and ageing
The harvest is sorted before the grapes undergo pneumatic pressing and settling, followed by fermentation in wooden vats and stainless steel tanks for 3 to 4 weeks under monitored temperatures between 15 and 20°C. Aged on fine lees for 10 to 12 months with stirring of the lees as needed depending on the vintage. Gently fined and lightly filtered before bottling.
