The vineyards are located in the winemaking region near the town of Saint-Tropez. In the Presqu’ile de St. Tropez, where some of the parcels are located, the soil is mainly clay and sand; the other parcels are located on land predominantly within the historic Triangle d’Or (Golden Triangle), where the soil is a combination of clay and limestone. All of these vineyards have ideal exposure and the maritime presence helps to regulate and balance the temperatures as well as the moisture. The dry air permits the grapes to ripen perfectly in this advantageous Mediterranean micro-climate and then assembled to create a perfect balance between freshness and richness.
The days start early at 4AM, to harvest cool and crisp grapes in order to prevent oxidation. The fresh juice of the grapes is extracted immediately by a pneumatic membrane press and keeps the juice at a low temperature while minimizing oxidation. Once the juice is cold and settled, it is brought to fermentation at a low temperature in thermo-regulated (stainless steel) tanks to create a clean and crisp aromatic expression.
