    THE STORY: Grape variety Marsanne. The old vines (60 to 70 years old) guarantee low yields and a quality production. Soil The grapes producing “De l’Orée” come from “Les Murets” plot. This soil is made up with very old fluvioglacial alluvial deposits. Harvest Hand harvesting at maturity. Winemaking After pressing, the must is cold-settling for around 24 hours. About 50% is vinified in big wooden barrels (600 liters) with regular stirrings of the lees, the rest is in vats. Maturing Maturing on lees with regular stirrings for 6 months. Before bottling, the ageing in casks is checked by frequent tastings. The maturing lasts between 10 and 12 months.
