Wine Maker Notes
The vineyards are tended with great care and attention, pruned with the Royat cordon method (short) in order to limit yields, and the vines are trained in espalier trellising to optimize the exposure of the leaves and bunches to the sun and thus ensure homogeneous ripening.Each variety is picked manually when fully ripe and transported to the cellar in wooden tubs. The juice is immediately extracted using delicate pressure in a pneumatic press in order to ensure the quality of the must.It is allowed to settle for 48 hours and then the fermentation begins in stainless steel vats and some of the juices are placed in new barrels after blending.The lees are stirred regularly over 8 months in 225 litre Bordeaux barrels to enhance the fleshy aspect of the wine.
