Domaine de St-Agnan: La Réserve du Château
The domaine is located by the lakeside in the commune of Concise. Among the 20’000m2 of surface, 16’000m2 are oriented south on a slope of more than 30°.
At the base of this picturesque vineyard, a dry-stone wall of 180m long was built to offer a natural home to the lizards and salamanders that come to bask in the sunlight.
The vines have a density of 8’300 feet per hectare and are maintained with the greatest respect for nature. Pruning takes place in March and subsequent thinning is done entirely by hand. Harvest is usually in mid-August.
