16 ha. AOC Châteauneuf du Pape by which less than one ha. is for white wine.
Average age of the vines 65 year. For some parcels 100+.
Since 1980 the vineyards have been cultivated organic (the first in Chateauneuf du Pape) and since 1992 they are certified as biodynamic.
The cellar has in recent years been renovated and seems very well-equipped to make a "natural" wine.
Jaqueline André prefers concret vats although she has a few foudres.
The concret tanks have no painting inside as it is normally seen. This allows some slow oxydation (maturation) of the wine she says.
