Vinification and Ageing: Grape harvesting depends on the maturation of every single parcel of the vineyard. The grapes are divided according to their original lot. Polyphenol elements are extracted thanks to pumps over and punches down. At the end of the fermentation, 18-month malolactic fermentation takes place in new or second passage French oak barrels. After a wine tasting, each different lot is blended and then wine is bottled.
