in the vineyard : This wine is made from the fruit of 30 – 32 year old vines. The terroire has the characteristic deep red (oak leaf) soils, situated on a northwesterly slope. These wines are either trellised or bush vines, and not irrigated at all.

about the harvest: The grapes are hand picked and the production is very low (6 – 8 tons/ha). The grapes are picked at 23.5° – 24.5° Balling causing a residual sugar of 8.3g/l and alcohol of 13.5%. The grapes are picked at the higher balling and left on the lees for 2 – 3 weeks to give the wine a slightly off-dry finish.
