VINEYARD: From 1.5 ha of vines from two plots in Anjou; St Lambert du Lattay and à François(e). Vines average over 35 years of age. The vineyards are in conversion from organic to biodynamic.
SOIL: TUREVineyards are farmed using organic and biodynamic principles. All vineyard work is done by hand. Harvesting of the grapes occurs as quickly as possible with a large team to ensure the proper acidity levels are maintained.
VINIFICATION: Grapes are de-stemmed and pressed very gently immediately after harvesting. All juice is contained at 3 degrees celsius until harvest is completed. The St. Lambert du Lattay and à François(e) parcels are vinified separately in a combination of 50% underground Inox tanks, and 50% French barrels and Austrian Stockinger barrels (for approximately 3 months). Each parcel is then aged separately. After fermentation completes, the juice from 1 of the 2 underground Inox tanks is transferred to barrels. 75% of the juice is aged in barrels and 25% aged in underground Inox tank.
AGING: Aged in a combination of French barrels and Austrian Stockinger barrels for 12 months. No more than 20 percent new french oak is used. Most barrels are 1 to 2 years old. Aged an additional 6 months in Inox tank before bottling.
NOTES: Thibaud harvests his parcels using 30 harvesters in only 4 days! Harvesting is very fast as Thibaud harvests later than other growers to ensure optimal ripeness of the fruit before picking.
