The grapes are gathered into open casks which lets us keep the fruit intact until its placement in the winepress; to avoid any early stage oxidation. Handpicked grapes. Our wines are located in Cestayrols, on a clay and limestone soil that gives its typical notes to this wine.
A cycle of slow pneumatic pressure enables us to obtain the “coeur de presse” or in other words, the best quality juices. We then proceed to a racking procedure at a low temperature to eliminate any coarse particles that could hide any subtle aroma. We then arrive at the crucial step of the alcoholic fermentation. Yeast is about to work for about two weeks, at temperatures between 12 and 16 degrees. Maintaining these temperatures allows it to work very slowly, to its maximum effectiveness and this is meant to bring out the maximum flavours: an alchemy is taking place, and the wine’s base is created. This ultimate product is placed in bottles with the addition of a ‘drawing liqueur’ which causes a second fermentation and the sparkling wine outcome. This wine must be left to develop in contact with its lees for a minimum period of nine months, allowing it to acquire remarkably interesting flavours from this kind of fermentation. Once this vinification is complete, the bottles will then be ‘disgorged’, which means that their lees are extracted by hand. The volume thus removed is replaced by a very lightly sugared ‘expedition liqueur’, which enables the cork to be expelled during the opening of the bottle.
