Utmost importance is given to methods of vineyard management that is required by the principle of rational control: the vineyard is grassed through the ranks to preserve the biological life of the soil, the soil is cultivated at the foot of the stocks for the looking deep roots and that the expression of our terroir is maximal. Phytosanitary treatments are carried out at low doses, the sole purpose of containing the attacks of diseases and preserve the quality of the grapes.
We are trying to restore the ecological balance of the land needed to ensure sustainability of our land.
Our knowledge is applied to everyday life, to wine grapes, combining tradition and modern techniques.
The harvest is mechanical basis for our wines, Vouvray manual for our Quiet. We select our juice during pressing to remove only the best of the harvest and get the finest and elegant wines but have still some complexity and identity. The fermentation of the resulting juice is made only from natural yeast (own grapes) to emphasize even more the terroir effect. Then it comes to breeding is done quietly but is punctuated by weekly batonnages fine lees giving more smoothness.
Our traditional methods or “fine bubbles” are vinified with the same care and are kept at least 18 months on slats, making the bubble even finer and creamier froth, quality guarantees. In recent years our traditional methods are recognized in the Guide Hachette des Vins. Enjoy and discover our expertise! See you soon!
