The variety is almost extinct and no monovarietal plots are found. Plants are mixed with others varieties in which are called “mixed plots”.

It’s a traditional and artisanal production from sustainable winemaking. First of all with manual harvest, this allows selection in field. The fermentation is handled in small tanks of 5 HL and manual daily “pissage” during 3 weeks.
The grape-pressing is carried out in a vertical press. Finally, after a light filtration, the wine is bottled. It’s an elaboration without fining agents neither cold stabilization; sediments can appear in the bottle.
