In the winter Sébastien cuts the vines with yield in mind, in the spring he debuds and tops with sap in mind, and in the summer he removes misplaced clusters and thins to let in light. The fruit is harvested by hand on a parcel by parcel basis over several weeks. The harvest dates are selected under Philippe Cambie’s watch. All sorting takes place in the vineyard. Once the fruit from a parcel is harvested it is immediately cooled in the winery. The fruit is cooled for 48 hours then destemmed and put in a pneumatic press for two to three hours. It is then run into temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with each tank representing a single parcel. The tanks destined for red wine see a long maceration with pump-over and delestage twice a day for one month. The result of all the detailed work is amazing raw material, wines that rival much more famous and expensive neighboring appellations. Jolie is a wine with great concentration and finesse in one.
