This wine is a single plot selection. The name of this cuvee comes from the cadastral register. The vines are farmed in short cane pruning (2x3 buds) and trellised. They have been ploughed for 12 years. Severe budding allows us to limit the yield to only 35 hectolitres per hectare. This wine is uncompromising. The absence of blending makes it reflect the vintage.
