Savoir-faire in Châteauneuf winegrowing:

The understanding of a complex climate (heat, drought) and varied soils (pebbles, fragmented limestone and sand).

A demanding AOC: harvesting by hand, sorting in the vineyard and the winery, low yields.

A soft spot for the Grenache grape variety

For the nobility and honesty of its fruit and its silky mouthfeel. Our practices aimed at bringing out all the qualities of this varietal include:

  • Harvesting when the grapes possess the ideal balance of concentration.
  • Stirring the lees (red) to create a rounder wine.
  • Most of the wine is aged in 100-year-old foudre (large oak barrels) and concrete tanks.
  • For the Syrah, use of barrels previously used for one, two and three fills.
  • Light filtration, bespoke bottling.

A keen interest in the Rhône Valley's whites:

A keen interest and expertise in the promotion of the Rhône Valley white wines, which are still lesser known today but which, with their superb fruit and freshness, have great potential. We carry out an early morning harvest and no malolactic fermentation to preserve acidity.
