Type of wine:
Converting to organic.

Varietal range:
Syrah, Grenache

Soil types:
The vineyards are located in the coastal part of the Fitou appellation, at an elevation of between 0 and 5 metres. They benefit from the mild influence of Leucate lagoon. The farm is situated on clay-limestone soils.

Vineyard management:
The vines are entirely trained to facilitate organic vineyard management by machine and use of sustainable techniques.

The winery houses small stainless steel tanks, all of them equipped with temperature control, that allow each vineyard and grape variety to be fermented separately. The grapes are picked by hand and brought to the winery with no added sulphur. The fruit is protected in the hopper using dry ice and then macerates at low temperatures in an air-free environment for 2 to 4 hours in the press. The juice is cold clarified and racked before fermentation. After a small amount of yeast is added, fermentation occurs at low temperatures – 14-16°C – to promote the development of aroma.

The perfect partner for light, modern and joyful cuisine.
