|Composition of the land
||Limestone soil, its geological origin is upper oxfordian and it is called Villiers Limestone.
||The winegrowing is done within a structure of well-reasoned winemaking procedures, certified by the label Terra-Vitis. Particular attention is brought to mastering yield and ripening conditions ; leaf and cluster thinning (green harvesting) are performed depending on the year.
||The harvested grapes are received on an upper floor where they are sorted. The must flows from pneumatic presses and by gravity into the tanks below. After a thorough settling of the must, the fermentation slowly takes place thanks to a thermo-regulated system.
||Maturing on fine lees from 3 to 8 months is followed by the first bottling which continues for 18 months depending on circumstances. All the operations of racking and filtering are kept to a minimum in order to preserve all of the wine’s richness.
||Can accompany all fish, in particular smoked salmon, shellfish and seafood, cold meats, white meats and certain cheeses.
