Winemaking and Aging

To preserve their integrity, grapes are carefully harvested and sorted out by hand. Full clusters.
Following the pneumatic press, juices stay in a vat overnight for a cool settling down and then are directly filled in barrels by gravity.
Alcoholic and malolactic fermentations take place in barrels.

Aging process is taking place 25% in traditional Burgundian 228 litres during 9 months with around 10% of new barrels.
We only use light toasted French oak coming mainly from Bourgogne, Allier and Vosges forests.
Light filtration before bottling
