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 in oak barrels took place with a proportion of 25% new barrels. The wine is aged on the lees for 17 months without stirring to accentuate the mineral side of the wine.
This wine will be perfect paired with refined dishes such "foie gras", seafood, fish and goat's cheese.
