  • The Vineyard

    • The Domaine de La Pierre Latine is made up of eight plots distributed around the edge of the appellation of Yvorne and bounded by the foothills of the Vaud Alps. It is entirely west/southwest facing with steep slopes of up to 35-40%, which allows good natural land drainage.

    • Superficie

      6 ha

    • Altitude

      410m to 600m

    • Position

      west / Southwest

    • Soil

      rich in alluvium, sediment, scree and gravel, on an alpine limestone bedrock

    • Cépage

      Pinot Gris, average age 20 years. Pruning: taille longue (Guyot)

    • Cultivation

      minimal chemical intervention.

  • The Winery

    • The grapes are picked by hand at peak maturity and carefully sorted in the vineyard. After destemming and pressing using a pneumatic press, the must is allowed to settle before fermentation begins. Fermentation takes place over 2 to 6 weeks, on the lees, with regular stirring. 15% of the wine is aged in the concrete egg/amphora and 85% in French oak barrels (half new, half second use).

    • Format

      Bottles (75cl), half bottles (37.5cl) and magnums (150cl)
      For larger sizes please contact the Domaine at the beginning of the year.
