  • Vineyard Plots with the best balance between soil, plant, and microclimate are selected: North-facing hills for this wine. Control of yields via optimal management of nutrition and de-budding. The Versant Chardonnay vines are situated on sunny north-facing hills near Enserune (Languedoc-Roussillon). The soil is made up of limestone gravel which helps rainwater to penetrate well and gives mature aromas.
  • Vinification Pneumatic pressing. Cold static clarification on the lees. Alcoholic fermentation in French oak barrels for 20% of the vintage and in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats for the rest. Aged 6 months in French oak barrels (50% new, 50% one vintage old) for 20% of the vintage and in stainless steel vats for the rest. Batonnage on the lees to accentuate the plumpness on the palate.
