Vinification and maturation
The bunches are carefully hulled, selected and pressed. They are then placed in stainless steel tanks for cold maceration. This pre-fermentation maceration is performed at low temperature between 8 and 10 °C for 5 days to get a rich color and all the expression of the fruit. The must was then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Once the fermentation is complete, a post-fermentation maceration is carried out, allowing a higher concentration and structure of the wine. The wine aged in French oak barrels for 18 months, of which 33% is new, then eight more in bottle.
