Winemaker Laurent Vaille's south-facing vines get very low yields normally from twenty to twenty-five hectoliters per hectare. All are pruned in the gobelet style. The simultaneous restraint and power of his wines makes them ideal for aging. His area of the Languedoc has since become known to produce some of the greatest wines in the region. In his words âNature gave us a partition of land. It is up to us to interpret it.â
Traditional farming and vinification vines in taille gobelet red varietals are harvested and vinified separately and then aged in 228-L barrels separately. Reds are blended after the wines are fully complete before settling and bottling."
