Mastery of and respect for
the natural balance in the soils and the plant
As our guiding principle is mastery of and respect for the natural balance in the soils and the plant, we take special care in every stage of the production cycles.
In this way, we try to ensure that the vine and its ecosystem live unassisted, so that our heritage and its grapes are respected.
By respecting the fruit and its specific qualities, we obtain wines which express the authenticity of their soils.
So, respect for the soils and the environment are the principles governing the treatment of the vines and the ageing of the wines:
- All the work of the vineyards is done manually: from stripping to budding, and from tying to harvesting.
- For sweet wines: the grapes are picked selectively, only 100% botrytis (natural concentration) and not chaptalised (no sugar added).
- The white wines are vinified and aged in oak barrels. Nothing is left to chance, the origin of the wood (Allier, Tronçais forest, Nièvre, etc.), the type of heating and the expertise of the cooper are chosen in accordance with the type of wine and the nature of the soil.
