The vineyards sit on a mixture of fertile red soils and grey soils with lines of granite and limestone.
With losses due to smoke or fire damage in some area, meant yields were low, but of the regions unaffected the quality of the grapes is high
Fermented in open fermenters, partial whole-bunch, with maceration varying between 7 and 21 days and a short maturation in French oak barrels (20% new).
