Vineyard Notes: Pleine Lune, or "Full Moon," is sourced from four hillside parcels in Saint-Désirat totaling 1.2 hectares. The vineyards have a southern exposure. The vines are biodynamically farmed with fruit trees, lilacs and wild herbs growing throughout the terraces.
Winemaking Notes: The grapes are destemmed into concrete vats for spontaneous fermentation. Daily pump overs and foot pigéage is done. The Syrah ages in a combination of 80% neutral demi-muids and 20% old barrels for 12 months, then 3-4 months in tank before being bottled unfined, unfiltered, and without SO2.
