|Composition of the land
||The soil is composed of a high percentage of clay rich in iron, much more than in the surrounding properties.
||The work done in the vineyard is fastidious - severe pruning in the winter, regular ploughing, crop-thinning, de-leafing, manicuring the clusters in the summer - and allows the perfect ripening of the fruit. The grape are manually harvested within two afternoons and sorted before crush.
||Fermentation is carried out gently, without any overextraction, in temperature controlled concrete tanks.
||21 months in new oak for 50%.
