Vineyards & Viticulture
A blend from Romanèche-Thorins and Chénas, including Les Greneriers, Les Burdelines, Les Pérelles, Champs de Cours, Les Brussellions, and Aux Caves. Most of the vineyard is made up of old vines, trained according to the traditional low gobelet technique. A couple of parcels of young vines are double-cordon pruned to facilitate soil management and to allow for more efficient trellising. Managed without the use of weed killers, its top soil is tilled three to four times.
Highly eroded granite, foothills, and old alluvial deposits
Harvest & Vinification
The grapes are hand-harvested and transported in small 35 kg baskets. All of the grapes are sorted on the sorting table and pressing was undertaken following a 12-15 day winemaking period. 80% de-stemmed grapes. Aged in vats over a period of ten months on fine lees, including the use of micro-oxygenation. The different plots are vinified and matured separately. They are only blended together to create this wine after being tasted and just before bottling. Vinified without the use of SO2, then bottled with nitrogen gas with two grams of SO2 in tank before bottling.
