Vineyard NotesIt is made up of several major types of terroirs including pebbly clay soils, soils with layers of stones, stony clay terraces, stony silty-sand… All these soils provide the vine with a constant water supply and, at night, release the heat stored up by the pebbles during the day.
WinemakingAfter a total destemming, the grapes are vinified in concrete and stainless steel tanks for 3 to 4 weeks. Pumping over operations are carried out each day to gently extract the aromatic components, anthocyanins and tannins. The fermentation temperature is regulated and set at 28°C. At the end of alcoholic fermentation, the temperature is allowed to rise to 30-33°C to assist the polymerization of tannins.
Ageing6 months in concrete vats and stainless steel tanks.
