that respects grapes and terroir
From the first wine, to the most beautiful cuvées, the grapes are harvested with the greatest care in manual harvesting. It is then conveyed in tank by simple gravity. The extraction is done with delicacy without forcing the nature.
Without chemical yeasts, without chaptalization and without further additions, the grapes slowly turn into wine in the image of their original terroir. The clarification of the wine is natural and the cuvées raised in barrels are unfiltered. Thus, the wine that you have in your glass is the exact reflection of the terroir.
