The terroir of Beaumont-en-Véron: The ten hectares of vines planted in 1988 on this siliceous plateau located between the Loire and the Vienne constitute the most homogenous batch of the Domaine. Average yield: 45 hectolitres/hectare (hl/ha).
This cuvée comes from the vines of Beaumont-en-Véron, to which we add, according to the vintage, free-run and press wines from the alluvial soils of the left bank of the Vienne. This very special blend gives the cuvée an original harmony between aroma and substance.
A de-stemming without bursting the grapes, a cold skin maceration for 5 days, a rapid start to fermentation, a maximum fermentation temperature of 25°C for 10 days, which can be interrupted before the total transformation of sugars into alcohol, will give a very aromatic wine, greedy with the tannic support of press wines. After devatting, the malolactic fermentation continues in the vat and during the winter, this wine will pass to natural cold.
