Cold winters & sunny summers. In summer a fresh southerly breeze has a cooling effect on the vineyards, allowing the grapes to ripen even and balanced. The dry climate and the breeze keep pests to a minimum, resulting in sparse spraying. Grapes are de-stemmed, pressed, and settled overnight. Juice is racked off from the sediment and moved into French oak (1st, 2nd, and 3rd fill) selected by Monsieur Christian Redoux. After fermentation, it remains on the lees under controlled temps with weekly batonnage. A few months later, the wines are racked off the lees and returned to the barrels for aging for 10 months.
