The average age of the vines is 40 years, with some vines dating back to the early 1900s. All the grapes are hand harvested during multiple passes through the vines. The wine is feremented in cement tanks, lasting anywhere from 3-4 weeks; the cap is punched down and the wine is pumped over. Ageing takes place in neutral wood. The wines are neither filtered nor fined.

VinousBright red. Vibrant mineral- and spice-accented red berry preserve and floral pastille scents show excellent clarity and pick up notes of lavender and incense with air. Silky and expansive on the palate, offering juicy raspberry and floral pastille flavors that show an alluring sweetness and seamless texture. This pure, graceful Châteauneuf finishes with excellent thrust, smooth tannins and an emphatic echo of fresh red fruit. One of the more elegant wines that I tasted in February and a must-buy for fans of graceful Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
