Winemaking

The fruit from each parcel is processed in tanks of different sizes, and the different varieties are also kept separate, so that each batch is allowed to express its characteristics fully in its own time. This essential steeping process can last up to three weeks.


Ageing

In the cellar, the wine is aged to reach its purest expression. The wine is aged in oak barrels where it matures for at least eighteen months. The barrels are made from timber selected in the best French forests. 60% of them are renewed every year. The harvest is fully bottled at the Château.
