Winemaking :

The grapes having barely left the vine are put into temperature controlled stainless steel vats. The first stage begins with the pre-fermentation maceration: over several days, the vats are kept at 18C proceeded by light homogenised over- pumping. This step allows us to develop the elementary grape aromas.
Once the alcoholic process is working, we let the temperatures of the vats rise, enabling the maceration to be accentuated. Every morning, we start the over-pumping to extract the necessary structure for a good ageing wine. As the fermentation concludes, we reduce the measures so that greenness and astringent tastes are not extracted.
he malolactic fermentation generally begins afterwards or sometimes we wait for the spring, so it works at its own speed. The second fermentation reduces the taste of sourness in the wine. We then leave the wine for several months in vats to mature before proceeding with the bottling process.
