The domaine has a total of 17 hectares of vineyards – all estate owned – for a total production of just under 6000 cases. The soil is comprised of mainly marne (fossilized sea-life of either Portlandian or Kimmeridgian eras), limestone and small amounts of clay and sand. organically farms their vineyards and winemaking follows a traditional path with fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel with the wine remaining on the fine lees until bottling the spring following harvest (usually 6 months).
