The vines are subject to attentive care, frequent manual intervention (pruning, disbudding, leaf stripping, thinning, harvesting by manual sorting), according to practices that respect the environment. The vineyard is established on espalier, to generate an optimal leaf surface for the maturation of the grapes. The vines are planted at a relatively high density of 5,000 to 6,000 vines/ha, which allows optimal control of vigour. The care taken in the vineyard aims to obtain a healthy harvest with a moderate yield, allowing the quintessence of the qualitative potential of the grapes to be drawn. The harvest date is only triggered when the grapes have reached their optimum ripeness. The grapes are harvested by hand and are pneumatically pressed at low pressure for the whole harvest as soon as they are received at the cellar. After a light static cold settling, the musts begin their alcoholic fermentation in vats and then are quickly sung mid-fermentation in new barrels. Malolactic fermentations are carried out according to the characteristics of the vintage. Aging in barrels lasts 7 to 8 months (until the Spring equinox) with regular stirring. After a light fining, the wine is bottled unfiltered. The wine is aged in the bottle several months before being marketed.
