The grapes were hand-picked and sorted manually as soon as they arrived at the winery. They were then pressed in a pneumatic press which allows for perfect extraction of the juices without over pressing the grapes. Vinification and ageing took place in wooden barrels with a proportion of 50% new oak. The wine is aged on the lees for 9 months without batonnage, then aged in vat for 2 months. The wine was fined and very gentle filtered before being bottled.
This wine will be a perfect companion to lobster, crayfish, poultry or veal in cream sauce, foie gras and blue cheeses.
