The grapes are harvested by hand in small boxes and are then stored for 24 hours in cold storage at 8 ° C in order to transfer all the fragrant aromas from the skin to the flesh. Later on we proceed to grape destemming and then to soft pressing of grapes from which we get the alcoholic fermentation of the first fraction (only 45% of the weight of the grapes). After the natural clarification the must is poured into termo-conditionned steel tanks or for a few batches into small oak barrels, where fermentation starts at a temperature of 14 ° C thanks to of the natural yeasts on the skins to impart and character of the vine. Subsequently the temperature is maintained constant at 17 ° C up to complete fermentation. The must then undergoes the second fermentation with selected yeasts, which will take place in the bottle though. The long aging in bottle for about 24 months takes place in the cellar at a constant temperature of 12 ° C. Finally, the bottles are placed on racks and then made limpid through the remuage procedure before the disgorging ‘à la volé’.
