Technical notes
After harvest, the grapes were destemmed and gentlycrushed. Maceration lasted for about ten days in stainless steel tanks where the alcoholic fermentation then took place. We softly pumped over the must so as extract color during fermentation. By the end of December, the wine had also completed its malolactic fermentation and was introduced into oak barrels of capacities varying between 20 and 50 hl where it aged for a period of 4 months, followed by bottling. Alcohol : 13,5% Vol.
