Harvest made over night to take advantage of the nights’ freshness to preserve aromas. Once picked, the grapes macerate delicately at cold temperatures during three days to extract fruits and colors. During six days, the grapes are fermented at 25°C followed by a soft press. The wine is finally aged one part of it in stainless steel tanks and for the other part in French oak barrels.
