Vineyard: blend of different sites in Dissay-sous-Courcillon. Vines aged 50 – 115 years, grown on silex, clay, and limestone
Grape: Pineau d’aunis
Cellar: The grapes, after being harvested and selected by hand, are gently foot-stomped and macerated for 4 weeks in large conical oak vats (cuve tronconique). The fermentation happens naturally and is followed by 12 – 24 months of aging on lees, in 600-liter oak barrels (demi-muids). Bottled without fining, filtration, or sulfur addition.
