Nature is precocious this year, Terra Vita Vinum started its first natural yeast of the vat of chardonnat as early as August 21st . The harvesting team is on the starting blocks.
The braiding technique... In order to limit the mechanical trimming which "attacks" the vine, we are experimenting with braiding in certain plots. This method suppresses the trimming and allows us to indicate to the vine not to produce new leaves but to remain in a fruit bearing dynamic to deliver us more qualitative grapes.
After 18 months of ageing, we have bottled our Anjou Brissac 2018. Like the new name of the appellation has also benefited from a makeover with a waxed bottle, a new label and a new name: Rouge de schiste.
