The Manoir is an old medieval château, built during the “Hundred Years’ War” under the reign of King Charles VII to protect French people from the English enemies, and is located on the top of a dale. Put together, the various parcels of this small valley make up the whole vineyard. The vines are classified according to their age and their degree of exposure to the sun. The combination of the rigorous work in the vineyard and ideal natural conditions (clay-limestone soils, south-exposed slopes, natural draining), enables the grapes to reach perfect maturity. The berries are picked according to each parcel’s stage of maturation and a highly precise vinification can then be undertaken. The team’s job at the winery is based on accurate extractions, in order to obtain a very fine wine, with a great fruit character and elegant tannins.
