Harvesting of this wine is done manually in whole bunches from a 24.7 acre south-facing plot where the vines are 50 years and older and configured in the traditional Gobelet system. They are destemmed and only the best bunches move to vinification. This wine undergoes frequent pumping over, with malolactic fermentation taking place in stainless steel tanks. The wine does not see any oak.
The vineyards are owned by the Lecoque family, who have farmed this land for many years and have a long-standing relationship with Les Vins Georges Duboeuf.
This wine pairs best with grilled meats, spicy foods and fine, aged cheeses.
