Grape Varieties :
The grapes are selected from vineyards situated just a few kilometres from the Etang de Thau (a salt water lagoon) that overlooks the Mediterranean town of Sète. Soil type is clay and limestone. On arrival at the winery, the grapes undergo maceration with full skin contact for several hours. The free run juice is selected after undergoing gentle pneumatic pressure. Cold double decantation. Fermentation takes place at 16C in stainless steel tank. No malolactic fermentation is carried out to conserve full fruit flavour.
