Terroir/Vinification

Climate Continental
Geology Heavy clay, marl, loam, gravel, and sand
Harvest Harvest started on August 26. The first variety to be picked wasSauvignon Blanc, followed by Chardonnay. Both varieties were in excellent sanitary conditions. Winter was irregular with a very cold January and a warm rainy Febru-ary and March. The warm weather continued in April and May, which brought forward the flowering. Grapes ripened at an optimum rate due to the lack of rain in the harvesting months.
Vinification Upon entering the winery, the grapes again undergo a manual selection on a sorting table before being cold macerated at 5ºC for 24 hours. The grapes are then destemmed, crushed and fermented at a controlled temperature of 25-28ºC in small French oak casks, fo llowed by a lengthy maceration.
