The grapes are harvested only when they are fully ripe, as the quality of the aromas and the later development of the tannins depend on it. Vatting time is long : it takes several weeks to produce a wine that will be good for laying down. Fermentation temperatures are strictly controlled by automatic thermoregulation.
In maturing the wine, the most traditional methods are used : 150 oak stave barrels, one third of which are renewed each year. A further guarantee of quality is that our wines are bottled at the château 18 to 20 months are harvesting. By that time, our wine has a fine, deep colour, it is tannic without being aggressive. Its fruit makes it a pleasant drink in its early years, but it reaches full maturity at five or ten years old or even more.
Unending watchfulness, constant questioning, nothing left to chance, every act and gesture honed to perfection – this is how a great wine is born.
