The approach is very much the same as the one adopted by François at his family estate. The soils are ploughed by horse and the use of copper in the vineyards is at the very minimum, whilst any other herbicides and pesticides are banned.
The estate is currently under conversion to organics having applied for their certification earlier this year, with biodynamics being the next step. «We are convinced that living soils and healthy grapes are paramount to produce energy-driven wines with personalilty».
In the cellar Arnaud and François favour whole bunch vinificaions which are traditionally carried out in concrete vats. Generally he tends to avoid remontage and instead aims for a more gentle extraction. The length of the macerations varies depending on the wine but rarely exceed two weeks.
