Cultural practices:

 

It is with a perpetual respect for the plant and a reasoned approach to the culture that this grape variety is cultivated. The land is mechanically worked every other row, unpacked as regards the grassed row in which organic life plays a large part in soil preservation. In order to limit the risk of pollution, there is no residual weeding or anti-botrytis. The biological diversity of this terroir gives the grapes full expression
terroir.

 

Oenological practices:

 

The grapes are picked at full maturity for their fruit expression at night. Then, a gentle pressing and fermentation at 17 degrees for about two weeks brings it freshness, fruit and balance. Roundness is provided by the work of lees filtered and fermented in oak barrels then stirred for two months on fine lees. A single light filtration before bottling will preserve all the olfactory and gustatory qualities of the wine.
