SOIL & VITICULTURE
Pebbly terrain. These pebbles are particulary good at radiating the warmth built up during the day back to the vines. They play a part in getting the grapes perfectly ripe. The exceptional draining capacity of these pebbles also allows any surplus water to quickly drain away during heavy spells of rain, which prevents certain diseases from developing.
The vines are trellised as double cordon; the bunches are spread out and get better aeration and direct sun exposure.
HARVESTS & WINEMAKING
Temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Extraction is done by rack-and-return and pumping over, a number of times depending on variety.
Boxes 6 x 75cl bottles
Costières de Nîmes
A climate that makes its mark on the wine, characterised by a nice fruity palate and surprisingly refreshing potential.
