Vineyard Notes

Various geological studies carried out by top specialists have demonstrated the high-quality origins of our terroir: alluvial deposits of Garonne gravel dating from the Quaternary period provide the foundations for our vineyards. On these arid, eroded soils formed of alluvial deposits, Garonne gravel transported from the Pyrenees during the Quaternary period, topography formed in the shape of what are known in the Médoc as ‘croupes gravelleuses’, or gravel hilltops. They allow excess water to drain off and


Winemaking

Once they have been harvested, the grapes are sorted, gently de-stemmed, then sorted once again using optical sorting so that only the highest-quality grapes are used. We perform very respectful pre-fermentation cold maceration to enhance the fruity aromas before the alcoholic fermentation stage. This stage also takes place at low temperatures with gentle extraction, similar to an infusion, and shielded from the air to protect the fruit’s freshness. Then comes malolactic fermentation, performed in the vat.


Ageing

French barrels. 50% new oak. 17 months of ageing in barrels. The wine then gains fullness and density as it matures in French oak barrels. This oak is part of the process of creating the wine, adding elegant, soft tannins and allowing a tiny amount of oxygen through to polish the wine’s structure. Our teams look after it and protect it from oxidation, and ensure that this crucial step goes smoothly. The wine gains complexity, and is bottled once it has achieved the elegance and finesse that we love so much
