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: Subtle, characteristic bouquet with an oaky note. Full yet refined, without the slightest heaviness and with the liveliness typical of Les Genevrières. A voluptuous wine. Good ageing potential. 
 
Food-wine suggestions: Fish dishes in sauce - Such as pike in white butter sauce - Salmon with sorrel sauce
