100% Petit Verdot. Petit Verdot is a very sensitive variety, so it is treated very carefully in both the vineyard and the winery. Biodynamic handling helps to create a great wine. The fruit comes from vineyards that lie at an altitude of 900 metres. The vines are trained with simple guyot methods and were planted in 2005.
After a manual harvest in 15kg boxes, the fruit goes through cold maceration for 5 days and alcoholic fermentation with wild yeasts. The wine then ages in 100% French oak barrels of first and second use for 18 months.
