The grapes come from a plot of 12.4 acres of traditional Gobelet-trellised south-facing vineyards with vines more than 50 years old. Harvesting of this wine is conducted manually, in whole bunches, and the grapes are destemmed before pressing. Semi-carbonic maceration and malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks.
This wine is best accompanied with charcuterie, soft cheeses, burgers and a variety of salads.
