The harvest is carried out at night, in order to protect the grapes from the heat and to preserve all their aromas. The grapes are treated in the cold before pneumatic pressing. The wine is matured in vats on fine lees with regular stirring for 6 months.

The Mediterranean-type climate, which is typical throughout the appellation area, is marked by a significantly hot, dry season, mitigated by the effect of the landform. Due to the diversity and unique features of the different areas, major zones have been defined by their weather patterns and soil types.
There is a huge variety of soil types but hard limestone in the garrigue and schist soils are the most widespread. There is also gravel washed down by Languedoc’s rivers.
