Detailed information


The cold and rainy spring generated a late and long blooming. The hot summer, followed by occasional storms in September, boosted the maturities but still the harvest counts among the latest of these last years. We patiently waited to harvest at optimum maturity and our Viogniers developed beautiful aromas of white fruits and fresh apricot.

Grape varieties



Plots are selected for their complementary nature to produce a good balance between richness and freshness: limestone soils at half-slope level and calcareous fragments. Southerly exposure.


Harvest during the night to preserve the grapes. 36 hours of cold soak (5/6°C) before fermentation at controlled temperatures (16/18 °C). Elevage on fine lees with regular stirring of lees over a period of 8 months in 275-litre oak Laurus barrels (1-year barrel).
