Producer

   
Bought in 2005 by Stéphane and Christine Mouton, this vineyard  had the ultimate aims of producing the best possible quality in winemaking, which resulted in 4 different vines (6 hectares) being replanted. Now using a drip irrigation system, this vineyard is classified as organic. The grapes grown at this vineyard are Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Grenache Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc. They 'train' the vines using a technique called 'cordon de royat double' which refers to hard cane pruning, helping the winemakers to be more respectful to the land.
