Winemaking and Aging

To preserve their integrity,
grapes are carefully harvested
and sorted out by hand.
We work with 100% full
Before beginning the alcoholic
fermentation we make a cold
pre-fermentation during 4 to 6
days to work on the phelonic
component's exctraction. Then
full maceration lasts for 15 days
during which we'll only use
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 18
months with 60% of new barrels.
We only use French oak coming
mainly from Bourgogne, Allier
and Vosges forests.
Then the wine spends 2 months
in tanks before bottling.

Expressive nose of matured red fruits: black
cherries, cassis, remaining on the finesse and the
freshness brought by spicy and peppery notes,
almost mentholated.
In the mouth, tanins are silky, giving an
harmonious sensation.
