The grapes were gently pressed to extract the very best aromatic and flavour expression then the must underwent cold settling without the addition of sulphur. Fermentation took place under controlled temperatures of 15°C to 18°C in stainless steel tanks, lasting for three to four weeks. The wine was matured in stainless steel tanks on its fine lees with regular bâtonnage for eight months imparting texture. Bottling took place under inert conditions to limit the amount of sulphur.

Les Montachins is a tiny parcel of less than one hectare, planted on steep, flinty slopes with excellent exposure to sunlight. The flinty soils contribute to the fresh style of this cuvee. The name Les Montachins was given to this steep, mountain-like plot, which is located in the village of Menetreol-sous- Sancerre. It still features an old vineyard hut, which would have provided a welcome respite for the workers on this challenging, steep site. The vineyard is meticulously farmed with the greatest respect for the environment; for many years the vines have been cultivated without chemical preparations, biodiversity has been encouraged and soil preservation strategies have been employed, along with water resource management. In 2019, they were awarded the HVE Level 3 certification, and since 2020 the estate has been in conversion to organic certification. Harvesting takes place during the cool of the night to maintain freshness.
