Technical Data:

Fermentation Mode: 

Grape bunches are hand-sorted on a vibrating table and chilled with carbonic snow to avoid oxidation and reduce considerably the use of sulphur. After destemming, berries are hand-sorted on a second vibrating table and finally softly crushed. This process is “100% screw conveyor free” to handle grapes as gently as possible. The must is cooled to preserve its best characters before fermentation in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature. The maceration is medium acting using délestage for over 18 days.

Malolactic Fermentation: 


Maturation Mode & Time:

4 months in medium size oak casks (2500-4000 litres)
