Vinification

Sustainable viticulture is the focus with de-budding, de-leafing and green harvest to limit the yield and increase the quality. Hand-picking is carried out into small cases for fast transportation to the winery to avoid berries’ crushing and oxidation. After de-stemming, gentle crushing, fermentation takes place at 28°C, followed by a 3 week maceration. The tannic Syrah and Mourvèdre are aged in French oak barrels (1/3 new, 1/3 1yr old, 1/3 2yr old), while the softer Grenache is matured in concrete vats and 100 year old oak vats to preserve the fruit. Bottling takes place in March, after more than a year of ageing, and a light filtering.
