The Domaine de l'Amauve runs in organic conversion.
.
.
In 2017, the estate is in its first year of organic conversion.
.
This is the logical sequence of things.
Christian was in charge for years of great estates who were already organic.
During all these years, he did not had any free time to make organic the Domaine de l'Amauve. However, the vineyard and winemaking were practically conducted in organic.
In 2017, decision was taken to officially switch into organic conversion.
.
The way of working in the vineyard has change accordingly:
- The alternating row with wild grass is now done on the whole row. A special mower ensures the mowing until under the vines.
- The alternate row is entirely cultivated.
- There is just a few centimeters between the vines who need to be cleaned. Christian made the decision to do some thermal weeding in order to keep it clean. This is a small space somewhat important in 2017. It will be smaller in 2018.
.
Concerning the winemaking :
- No change. The organic rules were already applied.
