They farm 11 hectares which comprise of vineyards they wholly own and 3 hectares owned by other members of their family. Laure and Clement came back to the estate in 2007 and took full control in 2014. Clement previously spend a few years with Selosse. Since taking over they have removed chemical herbicide and pesticide from the vineyards in favour of a more manual and engaged form of viticulture, helping the wines to take a big step forward in terms of concentration and quality.
