Vineyard

The vineyard is situated on the banks of the Thau lake, between the scrubland and the sea, where the vines are grown in limestone soils. The Mediterranean climate tempers the daily temperature swings, with the sea breeze cooling the heat of the day and the mass of water of the lake, acting as a thermal reservoir to offset the drop in temperature at night. The vines yield 55 hectolitres per hectare.

Winemaking

To reduce the risk of oxidation, the grapes were picked at a time when the temperature was at its coolest, either during the night or very early in the morning. They were taken into the cellars as quickly as possible and pressed immediately in a pneumatic press. The musts were then left to ferment at low temperatures of 16 to 18°C, retaining the aromatic purity. The wine was aged on its fine lees, in stainless steel vats for approximately six months, giving the wine added depth and character. Bottling took place the following spring.

Tasting Note
