Viticulture: Organic/Biodynamic (will be certified in both as of the 2019 vintage) 

Vineyards: All of the grapes come from their own vineyards, and all within Trespoux- Rassiels in the Cahors appellation. This is at the highest altitude in the region, roughly 340-360m, a point that experiences a very high diurnal range and hence leads to a wonderful freshness in the wines. Their parcels sit on three distinct soils: Kimmeridgian, iron-rich red clay, and marl. These all produce slightly
different sensations on the palate, and blended together they create the ideal balance between tension, acidity, concentration, and fruit.

Vinification: 40% of the grapes were direct pressed, whilst the rest were destemmed and macerated lightly for 4-5 days in concrete. Following the second pressing, both parts were combined before the end
of fermentation, and racked 3-4 times in two days to get rid of as much of the lees as possible. The wine was then bottled to finish fermentation in bottle. Disgorged before release.
