Pascal Lafond has been joined on the family estate by his two sons, Jean-Baptiste and François. All 85 hectares are farmed organically, avoiding the use of chemical pesticides and herbicides and the harvest is done by hand. The bunches are then destemmed and the juice fermented in stainless steel vats, before being aged in a mixture of small oak barrels and larger foudres. Yields were low in 2019 as a result of the hot, dry summer, but all the fruit was ripe and healthy.
This CDR is rich and concentrated, whilst retaining excellent freshness and vitality.
