WinemakingOur Vieilles Vignes cuvée comes from two plots: Charbonnières: 2.32 ha planted with Grenache, but with a few other vines, including some Mourvèdre. It is located on the northern foothill of La Crau Plateau. According to the vineyard registry, the year of planting was 1900. Les Esqueirons: this 1.13 ha plot is behind the castle, on the west slope of the village hill, in the locality of Les Esqueirons. Both plots are harvested at the same time. The crop is first sorted at the vine, then taken to the cellar in 50 kg crates. It proceeds onto the sorting table, before being destemmed and crushed. No yeasts are added; we work with native yeasts. Maceration, with temperature control and daily pumping-over, lasts at least four weeks before pressing. After malolactic fermentations, the wine is racked off and then matured, generally in foudres or concrete vats.
