Working the vines : This Grand Cru parcel is monitored by a vine-grower who takes care of the vineyard on a daily basis. He constantly seeks the right balance between his own work and the biological cycle, so as to allow the terroir to fully express its nuances.

Vinification and maturing : Following hand picking in small cases and meticulous sorting of the grapes, pressing takes place in two phases: evacuation of the first juice, then pressing in two-hourly cycles. Depending on the profile of the vintage, maturing is carried out for 12 to 14 months in French oak barrels, with a proportion of new barrels that may be up to 20%.
 
General wine notes: Distinguished bouquet, with floral and fruit aromas as well as a toasty note. Complex and rich, without the least heaviness, this wine is elegance itself. Very good ageing potential.
