Terroir Soil type: crumbly and granitic, with mica and schist. Exposure: a single hillside, south/south east facing. Average age of vines: 60 years. Yield: about 35 hectolitres/hectare for a cultivated surface of 3 hectares. Grape variety: Viognier (single variety). The way we cultivate our vines Traditional and entirely manual methods are used to cultivate the vines. No systematic treatment, pesticides are used with moderation and only as and when required. Yield control: July/August: green harvest. Thinning out the leaves. Fermentation: 1/3 of the production in stainless steel vats, and 2/3 in wooden vats. Maturing: 12 months (regular stirring of the lees followed by racking). Temperature and hygrometry control. The wine is then preserved on its lees for one year before being bottled
