Harvest: beginning of September; hand made selection of the grapes, taking away, when necessary, damaged or botrytised grapes. Soft pressure, without picking the wood from the bunches, by using pneumatic presses, to avoid damaging the wooden part of the bunches, which could give unwanted flavours to the wine. Refrigeration of the must at 6 to 8°C, to stop any beginning of fermentation and to favour the natural decantation of the skins. Then, another refrigeration, bringing down temperature to 0°C, to permanently block fermentation (must has to be maintained sweet). Storage: in big inox tanks, in a refrigerated area; with this process, the aromatic bouquet is conserved untill consumption. Following needs, must is taken from the refrigerated area to be put in airtight tanks for fermentation. Fermenting must develops carbonic anydrid, which causes a delicate foam and a characteristic aroma. To be consumed young.
