Harvesting takes place from sunrise to noon to avoid the heat of the day. During the harvest, grapes that are selected and picked are put in small crates in order to prevent grapes placed at the bottom of the crates from getting crushed. Grapes are handpicked and mechanically harvested. Once the grapes arrive at the cellars, they are sorted manually and then go through optical sorting. All grapes which go into vivification are perfectly de-stemmed and have each of the correct physical characteristics dictated by Patrick Leon including shape, size, color, and condition. This is verified by an optical eye that is programmed to detect whether grapes ‘make the grade’. The wine is not placed in oak barrels but instead into stainless steel tanks, kept chilled at every step.

Nose: Herbal and refined; notes of jasmine, cherry, lavender, and strawberry.
