Tradition is key in the winery: the handpicked grapes are pressed in the traditional wooden press, in the time-honoured way begun by Fabrice's grandfather, and each of the 36 vine parcels are vinified separately to focus on the grapes' origin. The wines age in a combination of older oak demi-muids and barriques, where everything undergoes malolactic fermentation. Reserve wines are aged for up to 18 months in wooden tanks and there is a 'solera' system in operation with wines dating back to the late 1990s.
