This cuvee is an assemblage from several plots in varied terroirs. On average, the vines are 75 years old. The soils are clay-limestone, composed of clay marl and colluvial limestone deposits.
The quality of the grapes on these old vines explains the vibrant intensity of this wine. The bouquet is deep, pure and discreet. Vieille Vignes is full-bodied, solid, dense and long-lasting wine, sustained by a delicate mineral bitterness. This deep, classical wine can be left to age for several years.
Vinification and ageing: in barrels and in stainless steel vats for 10 months, with very little filtering when bottled.
Suggested ageing before drinking: 7 to 8 years
