BETWEEN TRADITION AND INNOVATION
THE WOODEN VAT ROOM
Our vat room was redesigned in 2007.
Here the vineyard is reproduced in the vats: there are 28 vats, each corresponding to plots of different ages and planted with different grape varieties. This reproduction of the vineyard in the vats is called “parcellisation”. It is all the more precise in our case, because the acquired knowledge of our vineyard allows us to blend or to separate the plots, to best respect the complexity of their micro-terroir.
Château Pape Clément red ages in the calm of our cellars for 18 months, in 70% new barrels. Le Clémentin is aged for 12 months with a proportion of 30% new barrels.
During this time, our teams take the greatest care of the wine during our rackings and up to bottling. We work with several coopers, adding even more complexity to our wines.
