Winemaking and Aging

To preserve the integrity, grapes are carefully harvested and sorted out by hand.
Before beginning the alcoholic fermentation we make a cold pre-fermentation during 4 to 6 days to work on the phenolic component's exctraction. Grapes are previously fully destemmed. Then full maceration lasts for 15 days during which we'll use only pigeages(punching the cap). Intensity and Numbers are lead to the concentration o ftannins, perfumes and colour.
Alcoholic fermentation is realized with natural yeasts.

After maceration, free and press wines are separated for aging.
Aging process is taking place100%in traditional Burgundian 228 liters barrels during 19 months with 50% of new barrels.
We only use French oak coming mainly from Bourgogne, Allier and Vosges forests.
Then the wines pends 1 month in tank before bottling.
