This Syrah is cultivated biodynamically, on a soil of highly decomposed granite soil known as "Gore" and loamy-clay. The yields are 25 hl/ha. A selection of vines situated in the middle of the estate’s slopes. The vinification is simply a continuity of his natural approach in the vines: indigenous yeasts, 100% destemming, daily punching down of the cap, fermentation for 14 days, and no “gory” chemicals. Maturation: 13 months in egg-shaped cement vats. Vacuum sealed at bottling, without filtering or fining. 2500 bottles produced.
