All of our wines are produced using grapes from vines growing on our estate and are laid down in wooden vats or barrels for 11 to 22 months before being bottled on the estate. We grow a range of grape varieties, including Chasselas, Chardonnay, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Gamay, Gamaret, Garanoir, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah (Shiraz). We have over 11 hectares in the Lavaux region, including 4 appellations – Villette, Epesses, St-Saphorin and Lutry – as well as two additional hectares in the Coteaux de l’Orbe region where we grow Gamay. Our vines are grown sustainably; we work the soil during the winter and harvest the grapes manually so that only the best fruit makes it into our wine and so that each Grand Cru is the expression of its terroir.
A capricious vintage as the weather was during all year 2011, the maturations in vines ended slowly beginning October offering finaly a nice and delicate vintage. Wines after aging are expressing pure aromas with a lot of finesse.
