Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The remarkable, over-50-years-old vines form one single, undivided vineyard circling the estate and benefit from optimal soil and microclimate conditions. Southwest vineyard to the sun allows the grapes to attain perfect ripening, using the Gobelet Trellis System, before they are harvested. Harvesting of this wine is done manually, in whole bunches and the grapes are unstemmed. Semi-carbonic maceration occurs, in addition to pumping over, and wine is aged in French barrels for one year, before spending six months in the bottle.


Interesting Fact
This very fine estate is made up of 7 acres of vines surrounding a magnificent house that was the former home of a yon silk manufacturer. Since 1975, when her husband died, Madame Jorcin has been helped by two wine growers, a father and son who work in the vines and take care of the vilification. Georges Duboeuf has been buying the estate’s wine for several decades.

Serving Hints

This wine pairs perfectly with fine cheese and hearty dishes like lamb shank with plums and dry fruits.
