The grapes are monitored regularly as they ripen, block by block, in accordance with a precise protocol established by Emmanuel Riffaud. It enables the winemakers to determine the optimum harvest date for each parcel or block corresponding to a meticulous selection of micro-terroirs.
The grapes are harvested by hand in 10 or 18 kg crates then taken to the bodega.
