Winemaking and Aging
Grapes are collected manually, sorted out and then completely destemmed. Maceration is made and the cap of grape skin is punched down twice per day to stimulate the process but no pumping over is performed. Alcoholic fermentation lasts from 16 to 18 days. After this period, wine is transferred to oak barrels to mature for a period of 12 to 18 months. 60% of used oak barrels are brand new. Malolactic fermentation is fully completed. A slight filtration is performed and then the wine is bottled in traditional Burgundy bottles.
