Traditional vinification and careful control at key stages of production bring out the genuine taste of the terroir. The grapes are sorted on their arrival at the winery. During fermentation, frequent pumping-over and one rack and return in the early stages, guarantee a soft and progressive extraction of the phenolic structure. 12-month maturing in French oak barrels, with regular stirring, add delicacy to the strength of this wine. It is naturally fined with egg white after maturing.
