Chalky clay, marl, and marly limestone from the Kimmeridgian era (the upper Jurassic geological period, 160-140 million years ago).
Manual harvest in small cases to avoid compressing the grapes and bursting the berries. Aged for 12-15 months on fine lees in neutral French oak barrels.
Charming bouquet with astonishing fruitiness and a good mineral character. The powerful, strongly constituted palate lacks neither elegance nor roundness.
