The grapes are harvested when ripe and then pressed directly upon arrival at the cellar. Cold settling and resting of the must for 48 hours are carried out, then the alcoholic fermentation takes place at low temperature in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats.
The particularity of this wine is the "mutage" (addition of alcohol in the wort), which stops the fermentation process. This produces a wine whose sweetness is natural; it comes from sugars, derived from grapes, which have not completely fermented. The wine is bottled in the spring.
