Vinification: From vines that are both 20 and 75 years old planted on 1 hectare of calcareous clay and stony slate soils. The vines have been organically farmed for a long time but are not certified and now biodynamically worked as well. The grapes are hand-harvested at the end of October, with vineyard and cellar sorting, before being mostly de-stemmed as they try to have as much whole cluster as possible. Maceration lasts 12 weeks in amphorae with fermentation with indigenous yeasts taking place in amphorae (250-450L) for eight weeks under temperature control with no pumping over. After fermentation is finished, the amphorae is filled and closed with inert gas. Stirring takes place once or twice a week. Aged in clay amphorae (250-450L) and used French oak barrels (500-600L) for around eight or nine months. Not fined or filtered.
