Terroir & Vines
The vineyard is planted on a tertiary marl terraces on limestone. The warm and dry Mediterranean climate is tempered by the sea winds. The estate is located in the middle of a well preserved ecosystem of Mediterranean scrubland.
Vinification & Ageing
The grapes are machine harvested with on board sorting during the night so as to keep the aromatic freshness of the grapes. Then, a direct pressing and a cold static settling are made. The fermentation takes place in 500 litres oak truncated-cone barrels for the high-quality for the most beautiful Roussanne and Marsanne and in stainless steel tanks for the rest of the cuvée. The ageing lasts 4 months, ¼ in 500 litres barrels and in stainless steel tanks on fine lees for the rest.
L’élevage a lieu durant 4 mois, ¼ de la cuvé en barriques de 500 litres, le reste en cuve inox sur lies fines.
