Production Notes

  • The grapes are hand-selected and harvested early morning, then gently pressed with immediate separation of the must from the skins.
  • Fermentation occurs slowly at 13°C to prevent malolactic fermentation.
  • It ages over winter in stainless steel tanks with manual "batonnage sur lies," then naturally stabilized and bottled without anti-fermentative products, aged for three months in the cellar.
