Manual

Vinification and Aging

Some of the grapes are immediately crushed and fermented. The most loosely-packed, ripest bunches are placed in small boxes, in which they are slightly raisined. The grapes are selected again, crushed and vinified at controlled temperature with punching-down and pumping over for 14 days. Malolactic fermentation occurs partially in steel and partially in wood, after which the two wines are blended in variable proportions according to the vintage.

Aging

in French oak vats between
15-18 months. Bottled are stacked
fot at least 18 months in a
horizontal position before being
put on the market.
