This vineyard is located between 300 and 400 meters above sea level. Vines occupies the slopes of the valleys cutting into the Jurassic limestone plateaus, west of “the slope”. The composition is identical to that of the hillsides, but the topsoils are very thin, even non-existent. Predominant soils are composed of clay-limestone, resulting from the variation between pure limestone and marl subsoils.
We carry out a cold pre-fermentation maceration at 50°F for 4 to 5 days. During this phase, the aromas of the grapes and the components such as anthocyanins will be released. Then comes the fermentation, during which we perform daily punching down to extract flavors and tannins. Fermentation lasts between 18 and 20 days. Maturation takes place in oak barrels for 10 months, with 10% lightly toasted new barrels to impart a more subtle oak influence.
