« The terroir speaks: the winemaker transmits. »
« We are at the service of our terroirs, we reveal it. » Our vineyard is made up of 60 parcels, very diverse in terms of soils, basements and exposures. This allows a great wealth of expressions. We observe our soils and try to magnify them in our wines. The Earth is never dominated; we submit to it as best as possible !
Our cultural practices are the fruit of this philosophy: Weeding one rank out of two, very light work of the soil (to favor the work of the earthworms and living organisms of the soil!), sowing of green fertilisers according to the needs of the vine and soil, etc. Our commitments: Haute Valeur environnementale, Terra Vitis and Vignes Vivantes, support us in the accomplishment ofour approach towards a viticulture respectful of its environment.
A grape variety adapted to each terroir
Some of our vines are planted for several decades; we accompany them, pruning each vine differently according to its vigor and sap flux. Our vines are planted at a high density : 5,000 to 6,000 vines / hectare, forcing each vine to search deep into the quintessence of the terroir and naturally limiting its grape
To vinify is to respect
We consider that wine is first and foremost made in the vineyard. As a result, the vinification will essentially consist in preserving the original purity of the fruit. Harvesting grapes at full maturity. We give time to time, whether in a slow and delicate pressing or in a fermentation of several weeks.
The wines are then aged on fine lees in vats, keeping the fruit's finesse and elegance.
Only exceptions are Clos Rebberg and Pinot Noir Mateo, aged between 12 and 18 months in barrels.
