This wine is produced from Chardonnay grape variety grown in different terroirs of the Pays d’Oc region: from the Cévennes at an altitude of 400 m, the clay-limestone and basaltic soils giving freshness and acidity to the wine. Rich stony clay from the Hérault plain gives rich round wines, from the Aude Valley , claylimestone soils of the Minervois region giving fruity wines, and finally from the Limoux region.
35% of the final blend is aged in oak barrels. Slow fermentation with control of tempreatures. The wine is aged for 9 months in oak barrels with lees stirring. The malolactic fermentation takes place, to gives dairy notes and complexity to the final blend.
