  • Vineyard The vineyard is situated on the hillsides overlooking the Garonne river. The soils are made up of sections of clay, gravel and silt, forming a natural drainage, which allows to maintain a low yield.
  • Vinification The grapes are harvested using two machines with the latest technology to ensure the integrity of the berries. The date of harvesting varies from plot to plot depending on the level of ripeness and the condition of the grapes. Vinification takes place in traditional Bordeaux method: grapes are sorted and removed from the stalks and then sent to the temperature-controlled vats. They are fermented at between 30 to 32°C and vatting time is determined by daily tastings of the wines from each vat. After the vats have been run off, the free run wine and the press wine are aged separately. Bottled early with no oak ageing to preserve the maximum amount of freshness. The final blending takes place in June.
