This leads to wines with great purity of fruit but might also lead to more outspoken aromas. Beware that this style might be different from what you are used to when drinking conventional wines.
From 20-40 year old grapes hand-selected from 40ha of a parcel named "Le Clos des Carteries" vineyard, which has mostly soils of sand, silex and clay. Semi-carbonic maceration with whole-clusters followed by spontaneous fermentation with natural yeasts. The entire process begins in cement and is then moved to a tank to settle and age on lees before being bottled.
