The harvest is carried out exclusively by hand. They carry out a first sorting in the vineyard, then on arrival at the winery on a sorting table.

The harvest is 100% destemmed. A cold maceration is carried out during the first 3-4 days out of the 18 to 21 days of vinification.

Throughout this period, daily manual remontage (punching down) and pigeage (pumping over) are practiced.

Indigenous yeasts are used exclusively, and malolactic fermentation occurs in small oak barrels during the extended ageing of the wines.

They use 30% new barrels per appellation.  The wines are bottled without filtration between 18 to 24 months after harvest.

 

Crimson in colour with purple hues. The bouquet shows aromas of cherry, strawberry and blackcurrant, leather, truffle, fur, game, notes of macerated fruits (prune) complete the picture. The palate is muscular and vigorous, chewy, and full-bodied, its structure is both well-built and well-balanced and it is long on the vibrant yet lingering finish.
