This wine comes from a vineyard whose particularity is to have been planted entirely in “pied franc” -selection made by the high oenological value of the vines-. The wine is made from Merlot grapes harvested and selected by hand at full maturity.
Particularity of the terroir:
The strong thermal amplitude of this altitude vineyard (located at 1300 m above sea level) guarantees the natural acidity of the berries. This geographical location naturally allows for a reasoned agriculture respectful of the terroir.
The soil is sandy on a subsoil of calcareous sediments. Yields are low (40 quintals per hectare).
