Wine Making: Soil- Sedimentary rocks from the Cretaceous period, clayey limestone Vinification- Made from grapes bought from local wine growers, the clusters are pneumatically pressed and the juice statically settled over a 12 hours period. The clear juices are then transferred to stainless steel containers for alcoholic et malolactic fermentation under temperature control. After fermentation, the wines are kept in stainless steel until springtime. Bottling in the spring, after fining and filtration.
