The optimum picking date is determined after many analysis of grapes ripeness and berries tastings.
Harvest generally starts around the 15th of September, but this may vary according to the vintage. Berries tasting is the decisive factor that determines the beginning of harvest.
Picking and sorting is done by hand, except for the Vin de Pays.
Vinification is traditional, and will be adapted to harvest quality and grapes ripeness, considering the style of wine and the requirements of the AOP.
Temperature control makes it possible for us to manage fermentations and to create well-structured and complex wines.
After fermentation, the wines are tasted and blended before maturation in concrete tanks or large oak vats, according to their style and character.
