With an average age of 30 years, our vineyards are made up of twenty parcels spread over a very varied terroir with hilltops containing clay, sand and gravel soils. They are planted with grape varieties typical of the Médoc, i.e. 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon. As for the wines produced in southern Médoc, the rows are planted 1 meter apart, with a density of 7600 vines. This high density leads to a greater concentration of aromas in the wine. Our goal is to reduce the use of pesticides and work on substainable farming. The soils will be worked mechanically to allow the vines to become more fully established in the soil.
We pick our grapes by hand and carry out an initial sorting on the parcel.
Thanks to the parcel winemaking work, the best lots are assembled to produce the first wine with a balance between merlot and cabernet sauvignon. The ratio is generally 50-50. As blending is done, the 1st wine is aged in barrels for 12 months.
12 months. With a barrel renewal rate of one third per year, we obtain a light woody that supports fruit aromas.
