Working the vines : This parcel is tended by a vine-grower who takes care of the vineyard up to the harvest. Working with the cycle of nature, he enables the terroir to fully express its nuances from vintage to vintage.

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 8 to 12 months in French oak barrels, with a proportion of new barrels that may be up to 15%.
 
General wine notes: Very aromatic on the nose with notes of candied fruit and flowers, blending both smoothness and liveliness. Just as perfumed on the palate, expressing its richness and fullness without the least bit of heaviness. Good ageing potential. 
 
Food-wine suggestions: Creamed fish dishes - Poultry in cream sauce
