To preserve their integrity, grapes are carefully harvested and sorted out by hand. Grapes are partially destemmed (70%). Before beginning the alcoholic fermentation we make a cold prefermentation during 4 to 6 days to work on the phelonic component’s exctraction. Then full maceration lasts for 15 days during which They’ll use only pigeages (punching the cap). Intensity and numbers are lead to the concentration of tannins, perfumes and colour.
