    Average age of the vines : 25 years old
    Soil: clay-chalk
    Grape varieties: Cabernet-Sauvignon and old Grenache
  • Wine-making process : organic production certified by the Ecocert label (French Organic label)
    Harvest: Exclusively by hand. The grapes are selected at the foot of the vines, then transported to the wine-making halls in special trays.
  • Wine processing: Detailed selection of the desired grapes, separation of the vine stalks from the grapes; then the grapes slide down into oak vats of 30 hl . Fermentation is realized with natural yeasts from the grapes themselves. Traditional fermentation methods are effected in the oak vats.  Temperatures are kept constant, the juice is collected naturally by gravity, and the free-run wine is separated from the pressed wine. Minimal quantities of SO2 are used.
