01 Vinification

The grapes, grown using the “Guyot” training method, are left to dry slightly on the plant and are harvested at the end of September, exclusively by hand. The grapes are carefully selected and de-stemmed. The fermentation process, which lasts about 20 days, takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature between 24° and 28° C.

After fermentation, part of the wine is aged for a short time in low-toasted French oak tonneaux to give light and pleasant vanilla notes.
