In 2000, they started a replanting program that allows vines to age peacefully until a median of 35 years. High care is put into all stages of winemaking: the fruit is handpicked, transported in small crates and stored in controlled temperatures. The vineyard is comprised of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, varieties that complement each other in a blend made to pass the test of time.
