Domaine de la Pépière
Clos des Briords is located on the hillsides of the river Maine. Only 3 hectares of old vines (over 60 years old) are selected for this cuvee.
The subsoil is granitic (granite of Château-Thébaud). There is a filtering soil with ideal proportions of sand and clay.
Grapes are harvested manually then carried to the wine cellar with much care. The pneumatic press is filled by gravity, the grapes are not crushed. Fermentation naturally takes place in an underground vat, without any yeast and sugar addition, at a temperature of 19°C for about one month. This cuvee is left for 7 months on its lees without any racking.
