About: The estate has been in the Gravallon famliy for five generations and now son-in-law Cedric Lathuiliere has taken over control of winemaking.

The vines mainly grow on slopes of up to 40%, this makes some mechanisation quite difficult, if not impossible. Consequently, most of the work in the vineyards is done by hand (pruning, weeding, tying up and trimming etc). The harvest is also manual, with strict sorting to keep the very best of what the vines have to offer.

For the last three years, in the plots where mechanisation is easiest, they have totally stopped the use of herbicides, replacing it with shallow ploughing or simply allowing the grass to grow between the vines. The grapes from each terroir are vinified in separate small to medium sized vats. After vinification these may be combined after tasting, depending on their originality and structure.

Tasting Notes:  An attractive wine that is a beautiful deep raspberry colour.  Sweet blackcurrant aromas fill the glass.  On the palate its lively, giving plenty of cherry and strawberry  flavours leading to a long finish.
