Vinification details

Grapes were hand harvested in selected blocks in April. Alcoholic fermentation and extended maceration on skins took place for 30 days in open-top barrels with manual punch downs for better extraction and a lush and broad mouthfeel. The wine was then aged in 100% new French oak barrels (Mercurey Tonnellerie) for 18 months with gentle racking, before bottling unfiltered.
