VinificationManual grape-picking. The whole grapes are gathered in vats (no crushing, no destemming). Controlled temperature: 18-28° C. Cooling after pressing. Malolactic fermentation done after the end of the alcoholic fermentation. Maturing in stainless steel tanks. Fining with egg-whites. Natural tartaric stabilizing thanks to the cold winter temperature. 25% of the crop is kept for a while
in new oak casks.
Tasting NotesThis serious wine is still very young. Its black fruits and firm tannins are showing considerable potential, with acidity and a firm core still developing. This will be a powerful wine and one that needs to age. - RV
