    Vinification

    The grapes are hand-picked in small boxes and vatted, after destemming, by gravity. Vatting (fermentation and maceration) for 20 days in open vats with punching of the cap twice a day at the beginning of the vatting. After pressing and separation of the presses, the run-off juices are put into new French oak barrels for 10 to 12 months ageing. The wine is racked from the barrels and kept in vats for 1 month in order to obtain a natural clarification. It is bottled without filtration.
