Production note

Whole bunch pressing ensures fractional recovery. Only the cuvee juice (premium juice is the first 500 litres per ton) is selected for fermentation. Of the cuvee, 50% is fermented in specific Piece Champenoise 205 litre barrels to ensure richness and extra dimension of flavour and creamy texture. Only 7% new barrels are added each year to the balance of older barrel. After fermentation the wine is aged for 3 months in barrels on the primary lees and then selectively blended with other parcels of the best Chardonnay, that were fermented in stainless steel. The final blended base wine is then bottled for the second fermentation with yeast contact of at least 36 months before degorgement.
