(From 2008 Vintage) Vines are trained using the Guyot system with four shoots. Yields are typically 1.3 lbs per vine. Grapes are handpicked during the first 10 days of September. After de-stemming and a gentle pressing, maceration takes place at a controlled temperature. The resulting wine spends 14 months in new French oak prior to bottling and release.
