Winemaker notes

This wine represents the "tête de cuvée" of the estate representing the best juice and best parcels of their vineyards. Aged on lees for a minimum of 30 months, the cuvée has the complexity and depth akin to Champagne.

Viticultural Notes

Tucked into the western portion of the Languedoc region, the vineyards are certified organic and are located in the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains, at 300-450m elevation, with primarily clay-limestone soils. Fruit is sourced from the Levayer and Le Couvent vineyards. Grapes are hand-harvested and traditionally pressed in basket presses.
