The grapes harvested manually undergo a rigorous qualitative sorting. They are completely de-stemmed and refrigerated at 14°C for a pre-fermentation cold maceration in order to extract as much fruit and color as possible. The grapes are vinified in self-pickling stainless steel vats with temperature regulation. Pigeage is done gently for a noble extraction. The vinification is preferably done by ‘double grape variety’.
Depending on the typicality of the wine, the vatting period is 20 to 26 days.
