Exclusively harvested from vines that were planted on steep slate soils at least 30 years ago. The grapes for this wine are normally picked at peak ripeness from the end of October, with some of the fruit not brought in until December. Yields are kept very low, accounting for an average of 34 hectolitres per hectare. Wild-yeast fermentation followed by a long time on the lees, mostly in oak casks.

Very expressive aromas of apricot, peach, passion fruit and papaya. Wonderfully crunchy acidity complements these exquisite notes. This little bottle of vinous glory has a long life and a great future ahead of it.

Steep vineyards (Devonian slate and greywacke) with high proportions of ungrafted vines.
