least 50 years old. The soil in these vineyards is clay and limestone with some round stones at the surface.

A green harvest is done during the summer to limit the yields to around three tons an acre. Harvest takes place late at Berthoumieu — normally around the beginning of October — exclusively by hand. After being completely destemmed, the Cabernet and Tannat are fermented separately in cement tanks. During this time, a bit of micro-oxygénation or microboullage takes place.

The wine then goes into oak (60%) in an underground cellar where it also undergoes malolactic fermentation. After twelve months in wood, it is blended and bottled after a very light filtration.
