AGE OF VINES: 60 years
TERROIR: Coming from 3.5 hectares of massale selected vines, with an average age of 60 years mainly from parcels located in the localities: Le Colombier (near Corcelette), Les Grands Cras, Les Chênes and Château Gaillard.
WINEMAKING: The grapes are hand-harvested at optimum maturity. The whole clusters are put into vats for semi-carbonic vinification and the fermentation begins spontaneously thanks to the indigenous yeasts. Carbonic maceration lasts on average between 12 and 30 days, pressing is done with an old vertical wooden press and the second part of fermentation takes place in vats then ends in casks, demi-muits and old wood barrels. Rest on the lees for 8 to 10 months.
