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 two different types of soil: carboniferous rock and schist in the north and the visibly whiter, limestone-rich soils of the southern and western sides of the appellation.
The grapes were harvested in the early hours of the morning to retain freshness. They were stored at 16°C for 5-10 days before a cool fermentation (at 14°C) took place in stainless-steel tanks. Post fermentation, the wine remained on its lees for three months, with occasional lees stirring to add depth and complexity.
