VINIFICATION AND MATURING

It is of traditional Burgundian type. Harvested by hand, the grapes are sorted once at the vineyard and then at the wineries as soon as they arrive. After this severe sorting, they are destemmed, crushed and then placed into thermo-regulated tanks. The vatting lasts from 20 to 25 days. The vinification begins with a cold maceration (8°-10°C) for 5 to 6 days, then the fermentation is carried out with the introduction of Burgundy yeasts, with daily pumping over and punching down. The ageing continues in 228 litres barrels, of which about 30% new barrels for 12 to 15 months
