Tech facts: 

Vinification: 25HL/HA yield. Whole bunches are handpicked in small crates, strict selection in the vineyard, followed by a very gentle and slow pressing using the château’s centuries-old vertical press. The press also yields a naturally clear must that does not need to be filtered or clarified. Fermentation begins with a pied de cuve of native yeasts in neutral fiberglass containers. The wine spends 8 months in concrete vats.

Terroir: Aux Saules is a single vineyard at 350m planted to goblet-trained gamay in the 60's. The parcel is south facing with pink granite soils. 

Cosima began the conversion of all 6ha of family vineyards to organic farming in 2019, utilising agroforestry and cover crops to create an integrated landscape that brings nature into the vineyards. She utilizes 15 different cover crops, rotating and adapting each to suit the needs of the parcel, which creates natural biodiversity and a true polyculture with healthy, living soil, which also counteracts erosion.
