This is success depends the production quality and longevity of the vineyard parcel. The number of buds causes too abundant harvest and an inability to obtain ripe grapes as desired. On the other hand, atoo low number of buds promotes the growth of the vine (more leaves) at the expense of ripeness. We must find the balance that is best expressed what this fabulous plant vines.
We use three types of size: the guyot simple cord Royat and the cup. Only the hand of the man and his experience can find that balance because each variety is different and each plot is also expressed differently. During this period we do two other spots in the vines and trellis maintenance fertilization.
In the cellar, the wines rest. In February the Red Guard are put in barrels for a period of twelve months.
