Grape variety : 100 % Grenache – old-vine, With small Yields, 15 hl/ha.
Soil : Soil that contains some very thick sandy marls occupying the entire depression of the ” Brûlat “. At certain levels are interspersed with the swarms of Ferruginous sandstone, which is the case for this plot of old-vine Grenache. Superficial soil, with good agronomic skills to produce quality wines. Cultural practices : Currently in conversion to organic agriculture (first harvest in organic agriculture in 2021), the vineyard has been managed for more than 10 years with wine-growing practices that meet the specifications of organic agriculture. We have integrated a process to reduce the use of phytosanitary products. This means that the treatments are carried out at night, we adapt our interventions to the disease pressure, the stages of Vine receptivity and the climatic conditions. Our soils are not worked from October to March. Starting in March, a work of the Cavaillon is carried out using interception tools, supplemented by a superficial ploughing of the inter-rows. Our vines are led in “Goblet pruning” and we have a few smooth plots.
Harvest : Manual harvest, sorting on the vine and cellar. Maximum output of 40 hl/ha. .
More than 20 years.
