About this wine
Grapes are carefully selected in the vineyards,
and harvested by hand into 8 kilo crates.
They are destemmed, never crushed, then conveyed
into temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, where
alcoholic fermentation and maceration take place.
Maceration lasts about 12 days.
   After completing full malolactic fermentation, the
wine is transferred into barriques and tonneaux.
The oak is 100% French (5% new; remainder consists
of second and third-fill barrels). The wine is regularly
racked and tasted during the entire maturation
period, which may last up to 14 months. At the end
of the élevage, the best lots are selected through
extensive tasting and assembled to create the final blend.
After bottling, the wine rests for at least three months
before release.
   No animal products or byproducts are used
in the production of this wine, making it
suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
