Terroir : 4 Ha vineyard located in Courthézon, next to the Ouvèze River. The soil is a mix of sand and clay with a few pebbles.
Grape varieties : 100% Grenache. Vines are on average 50 years old.
Harvest and Vinification : Half of the grenache is hand harvested (because they are pruned as gobelets) and the rest is manually harvested, both with double selection (in the vineyard and in the cellar). Totally destemmed then fermented using natural yeasts in stainless steel vats for a period of 3 weeks. The wine is then aged in concrete and stainless steel tanks for one year.
Yields : 45 HL/Ha.
