Since purchase organic principles are followed, with more recently a move into biodynamic methods - the 2017 vintage the first to be certified by Demeter. They plough the vineyard which is composed of Sandy clay with traces of iron pan.

Fermentation carried out in thermo-regulated concrete tanks. Malolactic fermentation in concrete vats. Ageing in oak for 12 months, with 25% new oak barrels.
On the nose rich red fruit, a hint of sous bois. Crème de cassis, dark chocolate, and spice on a palette of some purity. Soft but firm tannic structure.
