The grapes were fully destemmed and fermented with natural yeasts which are present on the berry's skin and bring the most sincere expression of the terroir and the climate. Vinification took place in the gravity-fed winery without the use of pumps and without additions. Each parcel was fermented at temperatures of less than 25°C in 60 hectolitre concrete tanks. A brief maceration of less than five days followed, with daily manual punching down of the cap. The wine was aged in concrete tanks for six months.

Winery

This cuvee is produced from a parcel of old vines, from the local Gaillac variety of Braucol, a dark-skinned local indigenous variety that is sometimes known as Fer Servadou. DNA testing suggests it originates from the Carmenere family. The windswept hillside plot benefits from the warmth of the Mediterranean climate, tempered by oceanic breezes which impart balancing acidity to the fruit and keep the vineyard healthy by aerating the vines. The vineyard sits upon cool and draining clay-limestone soils, which produce fruity red wines with roundness and finesse. The vineyard is in conversion to organic status; no herbicides or insecticides are used and the vines are manually tended with leaf removal and green harvesting taking place by hand. Constantly striving to improve the natural balance between soil, flora and fauna, practices that respect the environment are employed; with cover crops in the vineyard, natural fertilisers to nourish the soils and silica treatments to help strengthen the vigour of the vines. The fruit is hand-harvested.
