what producer says
Grapes are hand harvested at peak levels of maturity and expression. The plots are located on hillsides facing West on Kimmeridgean clay. Fermentation is slow and relatively cool on its fine lees with natural yeasts. The lees are regularly moved around during the six first months of maturation, the wine is left to rest undisturbed for another 1-4 months before being bottled. No oak treatment.
