The old vineyards are planted exclusively on decomposed granite soils, they are high-lying and in close proximity to the ocean. This combined with the philosophy of picking grapes when they are fresh and ripe, extracting flavours optimally, as well as using good judgement when integrating oak, is extremely important when crafting this special wine.
After fermentation the wine is aged in French oak (25% of which is new) for 16 months.
