The vineyard covered 14 hectares, but this year we have uprooted 4 hectares which will be replanted in the years to come.
Currently the vineyard, still classified organic, covers 10 ha including 8.5 ha in red grape varieties: merlot, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon, malbec et 1.5 ha en cépages blanc : sauvignon blanc and gris and muscadelle.
The vines are between 20 and 45 years old, they are planted at a distance of 3.5 m and 2 m.
The terroir is the genetic heritage of wines, ours is very varied ranging from clay-limestone to silty clay and limestone with flint.
The soil takes on such importance that very fine variations, even between two neighboring plots, result in great differences in quality and typicity of the wine.
The work in the vineyards and the cellar is orchestrated and carefully followed by our cellar master Luc Bonnamy, Lulu for friends, very well known in the region. He has 15 years of experience in organic wines.
