This is some of the lowest yields in all of Saint Emilion! The vinification takes place in a combination of small, dual walled, insulated, stainless steel vats and cement tanks. The juice receives a 21 to 25-day maceration in temperature controlled, stainless steel vats and Taransaud oak tanks. Malolactic fermentation takes place in 100% new, French oak barrels. The wine of Les Angelots de Gracia is aged in 100% new, French oak barrels. As you can expect, not much wine is made as on average, there is less than 200 cases of wine produced here per vintage." -Wine Cellar Insider
