The red Le Faîte (from Tannat, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinenc grapes) is produced on several of the best parcels in the Aignan, Plaisance, and Saint Mont terroirs. They comprise limestone and variegated clay soils, and fawn-coloured sand. The parcels are old enough for the vine roots to accept regulated water, and have been selected for their cool geographical situations in order to produce grapes bursting with all the power and freshness the area’s microclimate can bestow. Protection of the vineyard is sustainable thanks to the latest-generation tools and techniques. The wine is barrel-aged for 12 months, then spends a further 4 months in tank to bring complete harmony to the cuvée.
