Winemaker's Notes:

Placed about 550 m of altitude. Shallow soils, with terraces due to sep slopes, versant to south, west and northwest, stony, acid and coarse textured. Developed from granodiorites (granites). Low fertility and low water retention capacity. Own grapes and traditional viticulture suppliers. Selection in vineyard. 100% hand picking.
