WINEMAKING AND AGING
To preserve their integrity, grapes are carefully harvested and sorted out by hand. Cette cuvée a fait l'objet d'une vinification en vendange entière.
Before beginning the alcoholic fermentation we make a cold pre-fermentation during 4 to 6 days to work on the phelonic component's exctraction. Then full maceration lasts for 15 days during which only pigeages (punching the cap) tkes place. Intensity and numbers are lead to the concentration of tannins, perfumes and colour.
Alcoholic fermentation is realized with natural yeasts.
After maceration, free and press juices are separated for aging.
Aging process is taking place 100% in traditional Burgundian 228 liters barrels during 18 months with 100% of new barrels.
Only French oak mainly from Bourgogne, Allier and Vosges forests is used.
