100% Syrah, all of Andréa’s parcels are planted on clay-limestone soils. Chatons de Garde is the fruit of a 21-day carbonic maceration of whole bunches, uncrushed withstems intact. Low temperature fermentation: 16°C. Matured in old Burgundy oak barrels, without added sulfur. Bottled at the Estate on the 10th of July 2023.
