Savoir Faire

The Recoltant Manipulant has this privilege, he controls the grapes maturation at all steps and then, the evolution of his wine.

Vine-growing

Working in a “clos”, isolated, is an asset in a number of ways:

Hands harvest ensures selected grapes

Vineyard plot follow-up permits the respect of the grapes maturity, with custom-made care.

Pulling the plow in the roads permit the roots to draw mineral salts in the depths of terroir, which is a great source of enrichment for our wine.

Sustainable growing is essential: no insecticid since 1991, predators population development, preservation of ladybugs who keep away midges from the grapes, sexual confusion, controlled grassing.

Wine-making

Plots are grown separately, to preserve their identity and singularity.

Wines are then few manipulated in order to preserve primary aromas (those who are present in the fruit) : gravity transferts are preferred against pumpings which can damage wine aromatic qualities.

Sulfites quantities are minimized thanks to a complete control of every wine-making step.

Natural rhythms are respected in wine evolution as in the vineyard patience is our word: drawing is made when the weather gets warmer, not by wine heating; bottles’ rest time is 3 years minimum. All those choices tend to let the wine express itself and in particular, to bring a special lingering taste.

Sustainable vineyard growing, slow and qualitative
