The grapes are picked by hand at peak maturity and carefully sorted in the vineyard. After destemming, and pressing the grapes undergo a short, cold, maceration (a few days). Fermentation temperatures are controlled at 28-29°C and fermentation lasts an average of 3 to 4 weeks. The wine is aged in French oak (50% new) for around 12 months before blending and then, after a light filtration, the wine is bottled.
