Owned by the Pion family, the vineyard covers 80 hectares, 72 of which are dedicated to growing vines. Located in a village over looking the Garonne and the Entre-Deaux-Mers, the clay-limestone and gravelly soils allow the vines to thrive. The grapes are mechanically harvested, destemmed and gently pressed using a bladder press. Fermentation occurs at around 16 degrees and the young wine is then allowed to mature on the lees for several months before being held in stainless steel tanks and bottled.
