The vines, cultivated as trellis and gobelets, are harvested manually very early to maintain maximum freshness.
The grapes are pressed directly and delicately, preserving the juice from any oxidation.
After cooling, the juices remain in static setlling for 48 hours and then are racked for fermentation at 14°C. After fermentation, the wines are blended, including a portion of « Blancs de noirs », then stabilized for the fermentation in bottle.
The base wine is then bottled in January of the following year for the second fermentation. The wine remains on the lees for a maximum of 12 months before being disgorged, as needed, in order to guarantee the freshness of the product.
This wine for intimate and great occasions, has a character that is both floral and fruity, with spicy notes on the finish.
The palate combines freshness, fruit and elegance.
