The vineyard is located in the east side of la Vallée de la Loire, between Amboise and Chéverny, in the heart of the Appellation of Touraine. Benefitting from a warm climate during the summer months, this microclimate helps the grapes to achieve full their ripening potential. The soil is predominantly sand and clay, the latter having cooling properties and is high in acidity. Manual harvesting takes place in September.
The grapes were crushed, then traditionally vinified at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks. Following fermentation, the wine was then racked in order to refine it and further enhance the aromas, prior to bottling.
