From the vineyards
to the cellar
Over the past few decades, the land of our current vineyards had not been used for agricultural purposes. The soils – a mixture of sand, loam and clay – have thus been able to find their own perfect balance. Their composition plays a major role on our choice of planting different grape varieties. While Petit Verdot benefits from more clayey soils that provide a higher nutrient content, the sandy, loamy soil delivers better drainage for Syrah.
When the grapes have reached their perfect ripeness, the highlight of the work in the vineyards takes place: the harvest. We pick our grapes entirely by hand and thus ensure that only the best grapes find their way into the cellar.
At the winery, the quality of the grapes is checked on two vibrating tables before they are approved for vinification. We endeavour to have as little mechanical impact on the grapes as possible i.e. no usage of pumps.
