Vinification and ageing
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 15-18 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 dense and firm and will taste even better after a few years in bottle.
