Terroir & Winemaking

Terroir : The soil of this small plot is made up of quaternary gravel that is typical for the Medoc. Its quality for growing wine is proven by the fact that the vines of the greatest Margaux Grands Crus Classés grow just nearby.Winemaking : The vineyard is managed by one winegrower, who is the most experienced in our team. The grapes are picked by hand, when they are initially sorted in the vineyard. Before being loaded into the tanks, the fruit is sorted a second time on a table in order to remove any foreign body remaining. It is then placed in two small 32-hectolitre tanks, keeping the grape varieties separate and without being crushed. As the juice ferments, the cap is punched down and stirred by hand. No pump is used at any point. Because the volume of juice is small, manipulation is minimal and vinification is allowed to take place as naturally as possible.
