I.G.P Cité de Carcassonne
The vineyard is situated at over 200m (650 ft) above sea level on a cool site facing the Pyrenees. The cool nights and warm summers provide the perfect temperature range for ensuring a healthy maturation of the Chardonnay grape.
The grapes are picked at night to preserve the grapes’ quality potential. After de-stemming, we collect the first press juice to obtain the best acid/fat balance. After a light settling, the wine ferments at 17/18 °C for around twenty days and will be aged on the fine lees from its fermentation for two months.
100% stainless steel vat with bâtonnage (stirring of the lees).
Clay-limestone soil made up of fine gravel.
