La Celestiere vineyard is composed of a patchwork of different terroirs within the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation, extending over 26 hectares (65 acres).
To the West, La Croze vineyard is planted with Grenache Noir grapes established between 1918 and 1920.
To the North is Palestor where Syrah, Clairette and Roussanne are grown on reddish brown stony clay soil and Baratin with a more sandy soil planted with Grenache.
To the East are Les Bosquets, Valori Les Gallimardes and Les Cassanets where Grenache Noir, Syrah and Mourvedre are grown on calcareous sandy stony soil.
It started its transition to organic production in 2010 and was fully approved in 2013. It is thanks to constant working of the soil and sub-soil together with a few organic compounds that the terroir can completely express its identity.
The harvest is carried out manually with rigorous selection of healthy grapes at the sorting table in the winery.
The yields have been voluntarily limited to 20 to 25 hectolitres per hectare, these figures being well under the maximum yields allowed by the appellation.
Grapes are fed by gravity into the fermentation thermo regulated stainless or concrete tanks. The tanks are provided with a pigeage system (punching of the grape cap). A cold and a warm maceration are done together with a long ageing for the red wines.
White wines are aged in oak barrels whereas red wines are aged in foudres, demi-muids or concrete tanks depending on the cuvee.
