Vineyard and Winery

The grapes were sourced from the Anjou area in the Loire Valley, just south of the city of Angers. The vineyards are planted on Sologne clay and sand which lend the finished wines elegance and power.

The grapes were pressed using a pneumatic press. After 10 hours, the must was racked and left on its fine lees at 8°C. Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 16°C before remaining in tanks until bottling.
