Sold Out

Terroir: A blend of Clos-Baulet and Gruenchers (etymologically walnut with small nuts), these plots with deep clayey soils are located in the center of the village. Plots planted in 1974-1978.

Vine Growing: Vines pruned in Guyot. The branches are crushed and spread on the ground to improve its aeration and its microbial life. These plots have always been maintained only by plowing. Pruning, wood pulling, evasivating, lifting, leaf stripping, as well as the harvest are among the main works carried out by hand.

Winemaking: Manual harvest, maceration for 5 to 7 days, fermentation with indigenous yeasts at controlled temperature (max 33 ° C), punching down and pumping over. The aging is done for 12 months in barrels (25% new barrels, first sedimentation), racking, then 2 to 3 months of aging in stainless steel tanks, (second sedimentation), then bottled without fining and generally without filtration.

Wine: Dense color with purple reflections, exhales a very beautiful aromatic power. The attack on the palate and the body of the wine are complex and smooth. The very long finish reveals a nice character. The power and charisma expressed by these two plots give great potential to this wine.

Aging potential: from 12 to 15 years old.
