The area of 45 ha is spread over the slopes of Montmirail Laces regarding the Gigondas appellation and on the set of the other Vacqueyras. Low yields on clay -limestone soils give the wines strength and balance .
Vatting time is around 20 days. The must is pumped over every day in order to extract the colors and tannins and to oxygenate the yeasts. The wine is aged for at least 15 months before being bottled.
