There are 13.2 hectares of vineyards located in one single plot and planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (30%), Cabernet Franc(15%) and Petit Verdot (5%). The grapes are hand-harvested and then fermented in a combination of concrete, enamel-lined steel, and stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged in oak barriques (40-65% new, depending on the vintage) for 18 months. It is bottled unfiltered.
