This red vine is a white juice within a deep red Gamay. The vines resulting from selections massales and clonales have between 10 and 30 years. The density of the plantation is 6500 vine stocks per hectare. The average grape yields are from 50 Hl to 55Hl/Ha, hardly one litre of grape juice per vine stock.
Soil: Le soil is of perruche type made up of clay-with-flints with a certain proportion of silica and gravel. Most of the parcels are in premiere côte having an excellent aspect and a rather important slope allowing the flow of water.
The Winemaking Process: The greatest care is taken to protect the grapes from damage during the harvest. A sorting is realised before the setting in press. The fermentation is of semi-carbonic type, which is to stay shielded from the air and in an environment of carbon dioxide, making it possible to obtain more elegant and fruity aroma.
