Located half-way up the hillside, in the heart of the vineyard, our 1.2-acre parcel is split into two: one half was planted in 1967 and the other replanted in 2000.
Kimmeridgian. Limestone pebbles encased in a clay texture, marl with oyster fossils. Relatively deep soil with plenty of limestone. Very steep hillside.
Grape & Vine:
100% Chardonnay. Vines aged about 40 years.
Long fermentation using natural yeast, in temperature-regulated tank. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation.
On fine lees for at least 16 months, only in stainless steel tanks and with as little manipulation as possible. Long stabilisation at controlled, low temperatures. Fining if necessary using bentonite. One light filtration is performed before bottling at the winery.
