A 100% Sauvignon cuvée made from vines cultivated organically and planted on several parcels of clayey-sandy and flinty soil. The estate is certified organic by ECOCERT, and uses natural grass cover between the vine rows. The harvest is done by hand, and the grapes sorted in the vineyard. Vinification: direct pressing, low temperature fermentation, indigenous yeasts, no chaptalisation, no sulphur, and two grams of residual sugar remaining after malolactic fermentation. Matured on fine lees in vats, and bottled at the beginning of 2020 with just a microdose of sulphur.
