    THE STORY: Grape variety Syrah. The age of the vines (90-100 years) guarantees a very high quality production. Soil This plot has an area of approximatively 4 ha. It has given its name to this plot selection and has a particular geology. This soil is made up with sediments on a fine layer being on a granitic subsoil. Harvest Grapes are hand-harvested to the limit of over-maturity. Due to their age, these vines give low yields. Winemaking Totally destemmed, the grapes ferment in concrete tanks. From one to two daily treadings ensure a good extraction. The temperature of fermentation does not exceed 32°C. Maceration lasts between 4 and 5 weeks, to obtain a polymerization of tannins. Only the free-run wine is used for this single vineyard. Maturing The wine is matured in oak casks (with a 30% average proportion of new ones) between 18 and 20 months. The clarification is natural.
