This cuvée was born from a principle of "Fermage" where the Château does not own the land but manages the vineyard, the agricultural follow-up, the work of the soil, the herbs, the vines.
Hand picking only. Slow pressing at reception for a light-coloured extraction, with separation of the juice qualities. Fermentation in temperature-controlled vats with indigenous yeasts only, at a temperature of 18°C. 5 months maturing on fine lees in large wooden vats. Slight sulphiting and filtration at bottling, depending on the pH level.
Strict specifications are followed right up to the harvest, carried out by the Château's teams under the watchful eye of its Winemaker and Oenologist Jean-Philippe Louis, who is leading the Château towards the conversion to Biodynamics and the certification of these plots.
