Located in Touraine, between the banks of the Cher and the Loire on clay-limestone soils, in the heart of the Loire Castles in the commune of St-Martin-Le-Beau, the estate covers 17 hectares.
Certified in Organic Agriculture.
The soils are worked and the grapes are harvested by hand. The wines of the domain are matured in troglodyte cellars dug in the local stone: the tuffeau.
The constant temperature is between 13° and 14° which is favourable to the maturing of the wines and allows the thermal regulation of the barrels during the alcoholic fermentation.
The grapes from each plot are pressed and vinified separately. The wines are aged in oak barrels or in stainless steel tanks for 6 to 24 months depending on the vintage.
