Vinification Grapes are hand-picked and brought to cellar in picking boxes. Harvest is entirely de-stemmed, and will ferment in vat for 8 to 10 days. It is then pressed, and when the fermentation is over, the vine is transferred for 2/3 on wood barrels, on which it will stay 10 months. The rest is left in stainless steel tank. Sediment that builds up during the various stages of maturation is racked up 2 or 3 times. By the last racking, wine is blended and fined. Light filtering before bottling.
Ageing Potential 2-8 years
