Grown in sandy-clay soil with flints, limestone underneath. South exposition.
Average age of vines: In between 50 and 100 years old.
Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested in several successive pickings to let the grapes have a sufficient level of maturity and quality. Grapes are directly pressed and then transferred into old oak barrels. The fermentation begins spontaneously and slowly in winter and finishes in summer. In total, the wine remains for 10 months on the lees in barrels. The blend is made in tanks after ageing.
Coralie and Damien Delecheneau took over the family estate in 2002 and are now writing new pages in its long history. Trying to stay as true as possible to the particularities of their vineyards in Montlouis and Touraine-Amboise, they chose organic farming for their 10 hectares of vines as the means to respect their land and let the grapes express themselves.
