in the vineyard : Harvested from mature vineyards (25 years old) planted to selected Davis and Burgundian clones. The vineyards are situated on cooler south and east-facing slopes (250-310m above sea level). Vertical hedge trellising and low yields ensure a complex concentration of flavours.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested between 9th - 19th March 2009 at 22 - 22.5°B.

in the cellar : After cold settling for two days, the juice was tank-fermented with a selection of French yeasts (EC1118 and D47). After fermentation the wine spent 4 months "sur lie" in the tank with occasional lees stirring to accentuate the leesy character.
