About

Product Description:

"The grapes, harvested by hand, are transported quickly and smoothly in small 20kg boxes to the winery in order to avoid crushing berries, oxidation phenomena and uncontrolled pre-fermentation macerations. The grapes are sorted in order to finish a fine selection of grapes at maturity. The grapes are destemmed and pressed by fractionation and at low pressure using a pneumatic press. Alcoholic fermentation begins in a stainless steel vat under controlled low temperature with indigenous yeasts and is then rapidly transferred to oak barrels from the forest of Tronçais and Allier (25% new wood). Elevage is 10 months on the lees with no racking. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation." -Winery
