The objective of all this manual care is to concentrate, on a small quantity of fruit with a perfect ripeness, the character, at times peculiar, of a soil changed in an aromatic complexity: definition of a “vin de terroir”.
This elaborate wine is an unstable emulsion. The balance will become stronger by a maturing in barrels, in fact a sparing oxidation thanks to the wooden porosity
At Vieux Chevrol, the wine is aged according to the vintage 12 to 18 months in 5 cm thick French sessile oak demi-muids (600 litres large casks).
10% of which are replaced each year.
