Additional information

Production

Situated on the Pécharmant slopes, the vines cover 36.5 hectares and, on average, are 25 years old. The yield from them is 42 hectolitres per hectare – which, after due selection, amounts to 160,000 bottles. This low yield allows fuller expression for the special characteristics of the Pécharmant soil, which consists of sand, gravel and a marked amount of iron in the sub-soil (- 1.80 m).

Vinification

Fermentation in vats lasts 8 to 10 days, with is carried out in open vats, with careful temperature control, followed by maceration of the wine “on its crust” for a period of about 10 to 15 days, depending on the results of daily tasting tests. Overall, then, vinification takes 20 to 25 days.
