This vineyard spans 81 hectares and follows a certified organic and biodynamic approach to viticulture, holding both Ecocert and Biodyvin/Demeter certifications. The vineyard's soils consist of quaternary gravel, and maintenance practices involve shallow tillage. The vines, averaging 50 years of age, are pruned using the double Guyot - Médocain style. With a plantation density of 9500 vines per hectare, the grape varietals include 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot. Harvests are carried out by hand in small crates, ensuring careful selection. The vinification process involves manual sorting and destemming, followed by alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts and a maceration period of 4 weeks with gentle punch-downs. Malolactic fermentation takes place in vats. Aging occurs with 50% of the wine in new oak barrels, 35% in concrete amphoras, and 15% in one-wine oak barrels for a duration of 16 to 18 months. ABV 13.5%
