Vintage 2010

Grape variety

Syrah.

Soil

The soil is composed of chlorite and ferruginous mica-schists blending in loess depressions.
Two main parts are distinguished:
• “the CÔTE BRUNE”: schisty with silty zones which are rich of shingles coming from the glacial era.
• “the CÔTE BLONDE”: clearer due to the siliceous and calcareous deposits from the glacial era.

Harvest

The grapes are entirely hand-harvested at maturity.

Winemaking

After destemming, the grapes ferment in concrete tanks.
A daily treading ensures a good extraction of the colour and tannins. The temperature does not exceed 33°C. Fermenting lasts between 3 and 4 weeks depending
on vintages.

Maturing

Maturing begins after vinification.
It takes place in oak casks with a proportion of new ones.

Alcohol degree
