Worked soils - Manual harvest.
Located in Touraine, between the banks of the Cher and the Loire on clay-limestone soils. In the heart of the Châteaux de la Loire in the commune of St-Martin-Le-Beau, the estate is spread over 17 hectares. Certified in Organic Agriculture. The soils are worked, the manual harvest. The estate's wines are aged in troglodyte cellars dug into the local stone: tufa. The constant temperature is between 13° and 14° which is conducive to the aging of wines and allows the thermal self-regulation of the barrels during the alcoholic fermentation. The grapes from each plot are pressed and vinified separately. The wines are aged in Allier oak barrels or stainless steel vats for 6 to 24 months depending on the vintage. They are then bottled and labeled in the cellar.
