Sulfur is one of the antioxidants in wine, naturally occurring in grapes. Not adding sulfites, forces us to always control the atmosphere around the juice of grapes and then the wine. For example, inerting tanks and pipes using CO2 gas naturally produced by fermentation. From this process came the idea to call this wine "Atmosphère".

Famille Chéty Since 1698"Amphorae" Château Bellevue, Wine aged in clay

We aged this wine for 408 days in 140 liters clay "Amphorae" turned by hand in the south of France. The choice of this aging process is the love of the clay pottery that was transmitted to us by our mother. The natural origin of the material and the neutrality of the terracotta respects the purity of the fruit and the expression of the terroir and finally an extremely natural aging process without any "violence".
