This is the domaine’s vin de soif, made from vines growing in gravelly, sandy, and clay-sandy soils. The élevage is a short four to six months in concrete vats with, sometimes, a small proportion done in older barrels. Light maceration—the intent is to have an easy, supple wine. Diptyque is ancient Greek for two panels linked together, which is how the word is now used in painting; in music, it's a piece in two parts. Here, with wine, it is a cuvée made with sun and soil. In normal years, production averages a little over 1,500 cases.
