Designation

Limoux AOP

Vinification

The Merlot and Cabernet Franc are mechanically harvested at night whereas the Malbec is harvested manually. The grapes then go through cold pre-fermentation maceration. After the alcoholic fermentation the wines goes through its malolactic conversion. Each grape variety is vinified separately before the wine is assembled.  The wine is aged for 8 months in oak barrels.

Soil

The large size of the vineyard provides a rich diversity of soil that enables the winemaker to show original expressions.
