Vinification

The grapes are handmaid harvested and carried in small boxes to the wine cellar to be destemmed. 20% of them are submitted to pellicular maceration for 6 hours in low temperature. While the others are pressed after being decanted, after fermentation the wine stays on the lees with some “bâtonnage” 9 months before bottling. Bottled in June 2021. Also bottled in 1,5L.
