It all begins with the vine.
Through regular plowing, our wonderful Terroirs express themselves up into the wine tasting glass. Spring plowing makes the soils loose and well-aired and trigger biological and physical mechanisms necessary to nurture the vine stocks. Fall plowing goes deeper and pulls out surface roots so that the vine roots sink further into the chalky parent rock.
Of course, we keep our old vines and some of them already underwent more than 70 harvests. They will expose the quintessence and the purity of each vintage.
As they go deep into the soil, the roots bring the vine minerals that are essential to the delicacy and good length of our wines. We use these old parcels for our sélections massales – that is to say, to obtain high-quality and natural vegetal elements for future plantations, thus preserving the memory of our vines.
