Terroir: Flint-clay soil
Average age of vines: 30 to 60 years old
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested. Natural fermentation, no added yeast. Barrel fermentation and ageing for a year. The lees are stirred in the barrels several times each month by hand to encourage natural aromas and protect the juice from oxidation. Minimal use of new oak barrels to avoid classic "wood" tastes. No fining.
65g/L residual sugar in 2015.
