Custody and Service Tips
To be tasted ideally at 12-14°C with grilled red meats, roast poultry, grilled fish or fish in sauce and aged cheeses
The grapes are harvested manually in boxes and put in vats, after destemming, by gravity. Vatting (fermentation and maceration) for 20 days in open vats with punching down twice a day at the start of vatting. After pressing and separation from the presses, the juices are barreled into new French oak barrels for aging for 10 to 12 months. The wine is racked from the barrels and kept in vats for 1 month in order to obtain a natural clarification. It is bottled without filtration.
