Production note

Handpicked in the cool mornings to avoid damage. Spontaneous natural yeast fermentation at a maximum temperature of 29°C. Time on the skins 6-9 days, with caps of the skins punched down (pigeage) 2 to 3 times a day. Single pressing in traditional basket press and malolactic fermentation in barrels. Use of a mix of barrels in the first year of maturation and mostly 700l in the second year of maturation. This better respects the complexity of the fruit while softening the wine sufficiently. 25% new French oak used – all 700l. Time in barrel 22 months, includes 3 rackings to gradually clarify the wine and assist maturation. Bottled by hand, unfined and unfiltered.
