This wine of an unusual character is named after our Domaine’s oldest plot of vines. It is here where you will see us lovingly tending to the 100-year-old vines growing there.

Harvesting is carried out entirely by hand and the grapes are sorted. They then undergo a light maceration before pressing.
After this, the juice is settled to obtain a great aromatic finesse.
Fermentation and ageing take place in oak barrels, a quarter of which are replaced every year.
Over the winter, the wine remains on its lees which are given a regular stirring (bâtonnage).
The wine is bottled after a minimum of 12 months of ageing.
