The property Domain Jacques Priёra - plot with eastern exposure, situated on a hillside, covering an area of 1.84 hectares.
In 2010, the grape harvest was small, but very good. The winter was prolonged. Warm weather was established in April. The air temperature was above average, which contributed to the rapid growth of the vines. Kidneys began to blossom on 20 April. Ripening of the grapes was long and leisurely.

After maceration on the skins for 24 days at a controlled temperature in open oak barrels with stirring mash twice a day, drink was subject to malolactic fermentation. Excerpt took place in oak barrels for 15 months.
