Story

Situation
Grapes issued from one of the properties of Ravel's family, located on Hyères area (closed to Mediterranean coast).

Terroir
Mainly composed of shale and sandstone, the domaine’s Permian soils are poor and thus require the wines to take root deeply. This allows them to benefit from the full characteristics of the land. The grapes flourish under the Mediterranean sun, which enables them to acquire their full flavor.
Vinification
Each parcel is vinified separately.
Grapes are directly pressed, then starts the fermentation with temperature control (cold-maceration on the skins for several hours to preserve the aromas). Blockage of malolactic fermentation.
