Vineyard Vines are 25 years old. Vine density: 6,600 vines/hectare.
Soil Mixed gravel soil with sand and small stones resting upon a subsoil of ocean limestone.
Viticulture Grapes are handpicked and carefully sorted by selective picking. The Botrytis Cinerea is responsible for the natural concentration of the juices in the grapes before the harvest.
Vinification V ery soft pressing of the botrytised grapes. Fermentation in barrels. Bottled at the Château.
Aging Wine is barrel aged for 18 months.
Notes The warm, early spring was followed by a cool summer. This means that flowering was spread out and ripening uneven. Very fine weather conditions in September and October led to the superb development of botrytis. A record number of passes in the vineyard accounts for wines of great complexity.
