Vineyard & Vinification Note

Average age of vines: 45 years old

Soil: Clay limestone and gravelly loam with iron dirt

Viticulture: Grape vines are pruned to gradually renew trunks and cordons and to develop the fruiting wood close to the trunk. Before the planting, row middles are grassed over at all times to limit the use of grass killers. Single Guyot and Double Guyot pruning are carried out on the vines. Choosing the best pruning method depends on vigour, disbudding, thinning out, leaf stripping and green harvesting to control yields and the health conditions of the grapes.

Harvest: Grapes are manually and mechanically harvested to adapt to climatic variability among vintages. Grapes are stored in small crates, shaken and tipped into trucks to limit sun exposure and to respect them. The selected grapes are always carefully cleaned on the sorting table.

Winemaking: Vinification in wooden and thermo-regulated vats. During the alcoholic fermentations, juices are slowly pumped up from the bottom of the tank and splashed over the top of the fermenting must 2 or 3 times a day. It enables a soft colour and fruit extraction. 12-month ageing in barrels of 1 to 3 wines (oak from Chênes de l’Allier, Seguin Moreau and Quintessence) in air-conditioned wineries with a humidity-control system

Tasting Note

Dark red colour with purple edges. On the nose aromas of red fruits and spices. Full and round in the mouth but with finesse and elegant tannins. Red berries, spices, and pepper aromas.

Food Pairing

Grilled or roasted meat, poultry and cheeses.
