100% Clairette from vines farmed biodynamically and planted in 1994 on a 60-ares plot of soils with large pebbles in the commune of Bellegarde, in the Gard. The grapes are harvested by hand using 15 kg crates. Vinification: direct pressing, alcoholic fermentation in vats with indigenous yeasts, then maturation on the lees in 228-litre barrels that have seen around 10 wines, with malolactic fermentation, and a light filtration before bottling in March 2020.
