Winemaking and Aging

To preserve their integrity, grapes
are carefully harvested and sorted
out by hand.
Before beginning the alcoholic
fermentation we make a cold prefermentation during 4 to 6 days to
work on the phelonic
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 of tannins,
perfumes and colour.
Alcoholic fermentation is realized
with natural yeasts

After maceration, free and press
wines are separated for aging.
Aging process is taking place
100% in traditional Burgundian
228 liters barrels during 13
months with 30% of new barrels.
We only use French oak coming
mainly from Bourgogne, Allier
and Vosges forests.
Then the wine spends 3 month in
tank before bottling
