A density of 4,000 plants per hectare and a yield of 45 hectolitre per hectare. Harvesting is performed manually and the grapes are transported in small 20kg trays to the cellar in order not to damage them. Pressing is exclusively performed by a hydraulic press.
Traditional methods of production are used in the winery: Fermentation is carried out with natural yeast under temperature controlled tanks with a 30 day maceration period. Once the vinification is completed, 40% of the wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels then traditional fining with egg white. Ageing continues in the bottle.
