The grapes are destemmed by hand

The vines are cared for by a team that also works with the best wines in Pomerol and Saint Emilion, where it looks after the vines of the four leading classified Grands Crus (Angélus, Clos Fourtet, Figeac and Pavie), as well as those of Monbousquet, Cormeil-Figeac, Beauséjour-Duffau-Lagarosse, Laudes, Vieux Lartigues and Cravignac.

Once the vine leaves have been stripped and some of the unripe bunches culled in preparation, the grapes are hand-picked, placed into crates and destemmed entirely with the utmost care.

Then , no more than one third of the wine produced is being aged for 15 months in new French oak casks, the remainder being aged in barrels that have been used for one or two previous harvestsPages.
