The vineyard is the subject of attentive care in order to obtain grapes of irreproachable quality, ripe, healthy and concentrated. The planting density is high (from 5000 to 6500 vines per ha) for the most recent plantations. The vines are grown in high espaliers to guarantee high leaf surfaces and yields are controlled (less than 45 hl/ha). The grapes are harvested manually at perfect maturity, and transported to the cellar using containers. The different grape varieties are then vinified separately, so as to respect their own characteristics and the capacities of the terroirs. The Carignan and the Syrah are vatted in whole bunches and vinified by carbonic maceration for 15 days. The end of the alcoholic fermentation takes place at low temperature. The Grenache is destemmed and its maceration time reaches 3 weeks. The wines are racked at the end of the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, blended and then placed in 225-litre Bordeaux barrels, for an aging period of 10 to 12 months.
