Grape varieties

A blend of Piwi Prior (40%), Chambourcin (40%), Pinotin (10%), and Souvignier Gris (10%) grape varieties

Terroir

This little garden of vines lies in an east-facing combe on Mont Brouilly, on a clayey/silty terroir coming from a volcanic rock, high in ferromagnesian minerals, the famous “blue stone”. The vines are planted in little terraces, which makes the manual work easier and helps to combat erosion.

Cultivation

On this little terraced plot, we grow a selection of Piwi grape varieties. These are vines that are naturally resistant to the principal vine diseases (mildew and oidium). So these vines don’t need to be systematically protected against diseases, like the classic grape varieties.
The Utopia of genuinely environmentally-friendly wine-growing becomes a reality!

On the slopes between the terraces, a multitude of flowers, herbs, and wild berries keep the vines company, to the delight of the insects, birds, and other little hungry creatures.

Vinification


Whole bunches macerated in casks for 7 days, manual pressing and maturing in barrels for 9 months
