Our Montmain vines were gradually replanted between 1983 and 1989. These four vineyards are spread along a clay hillside known to be sensitive to spring frosts. When the frost season arrives, we pay particular attention to this vineyard.
Kimmeridgian. Left Bank. Hard limestone with a clay base, soil is quite deep in some places.
Average age of the vines:
With no added yeast, long fermentation using natural yeast, in temperature-regulated tank. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation.
On fine lees, only in stainless steel tanks, with as little manipulation as possible, during 12 months minimum. Long stabulation at moderated low temperatures. Fining if necessary using bentonite. One light filtration is performed before bottling.
