Vinification and ageing
The hand-picked grapes undergo a short pre-fermentation maceration before being vinified in wooden truncated-cone vats. The vatting period lasts 3 weeks and the grapes are then pressed vertically to preserve the quality and purity of the juice. The wines are aged for 16 to 18 months with a variable proportion of new oak depending on the vintage (on average 2/3 new oak), favouring fine grapes and moderate toasting.
