The vineyard consists of mainly Merlot with some Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, averaging 30 years of age. The grapes are harvested manually, fermentation is carried out by temperature-controlled vats and the wine is aged for 18 months in oak barrel, one third of which are renewed annually.
