A low canopy allowed optimal sunlight penetration. Minimal irrigation was used. The fruit ripened slowly allowing the development of small bunches with highly concentrated flavours.

in the cellar :  Grapes were picked at 24.9° B and whole-bunch pressed to 1.2 bars of pressure. The juice was left to settle for two days and racked to barrel. Using only wild yeast, fermentation occurred over a two month period. The wine spent 12 months on the lees. New, small French oak barrels were used.
