Wine from a blend of different vineyards : "la Vache" mainly, "les Vaumuriens", "les Vignots" & "la Croix Planet"
Hand-harvested. The crop is sorted on a sorting table and 60% of the bunches are destemmed. We do a slow fermentation and maceration in cement tanks for 20 to 25 days using wild yeasts only.
Daily pump overs to fix the color and the aromas. At the end of the maceration, we press and fill oak barrels for ageing for 12 months. We use less than 10% of new oak. The wine is not filtered. We add very few sulfites.
In 2016 we suffered a severe spring frost and a very humid beginning of season (a weather for snails to be local!). The weather started to be more clement in June with the return of the sun. The vines could take over their growth cycle thanks to a long summer. Quantities are small but quality is exceptionnal.
The nose, very expressive, on wild berries, ripe black fruits, very seductive. In the mouth, the wine has a lot of structure, powerful, with aromas of ripe fruits and a touch of cocoa balanced by tension. It lasts long in the palate. Great ageing potential
