Download info sheet


In a region where granite covers 90% of the surface, this range also explores the rare schist varieties that exist and how the different soils are reflected in the wines. Schist is a sedimentary rock created by increased pressure on sediments that end up fusing together. A rock that is easier to break down, where the plant's root surface is deeper and water retention is greater. The wines are more structured, with more unctuousness and volume in the mouth. Harvest method Manual harvesting with berry selection and bunch cooling, followed by gentle pressing at low pressure. Fermentation and extended ageing in stainless steel vats with bâttonage, followed by extended ageing in bottle. Fresh and elegant aroma, with hints of tropical fruit and ripe citrus fruit. The palate reveals a velvety and balanced profile, accompanied by a very elegant freshness. With good aromatic concentration, it ends with a long, harmonious finish
