    Ageing potential: 5 to 10 years. Soil Old quaternary terraces with the surface covered by large, round pebbles from the Alps. The soil is also composed of Miocenian safres situated on Villafrancian terraces with a clay matrix.

    Harvest: The harvesting date is determined by the acidity level sought in the wine. The natural acidity of the must ensures a good stability of the wine. Exclusively hand-harvested grapes which maintains the integrity of the grape.
