All the vines are situated on a plateau, on a limestone red clay soil. Vineyards
are partially grassed down to create competition with the vines and naturally lower the yields to improve quality. All the vines are leaf plucked to help colour development and to avoid botrytis (grey rot). Since 2005, the vineyard has been converted to organic agriculture.
The grapes are mechanically harvested and are cold macerated for 3 days prior
to fermentation. During alcohol fermentation, the grapes are punched down to extract colour and tannins. Once finished, 15% is racked and aged in French oak barrels for 10 months.
