Grapes are hand sorted at the sorting table, they are stemmed and put in open tank for the alcoholic fermentation with temperature control. No artificial yeasts added, exclusively indigenous yeasts to maintain the typicity of the terroir and of the vintage. Manual punchdowns and pumpings. The wine is then pressed and transferred to oak barrels.
Approximately 18 mounths. Racking after the malolactic fermentation. Filtration is light or even nonexistent in order to preserve the aromas. Bottling takes place at the domaine.
100% oak – 30% new barrels
This wine is very charming when it is young and can age easily, developping more complexity with leather and undergrowth notes.
