The harvest is manual with sorting of the grapes, harvested at a very advanced technological maturity to obtain very ripe aromas.
We practice "Fulling": this intervention consists in bursting the grapes in order to release the pulp and the juice.
Then put in concrete vats after 100% de-stemming.
Fermentations last on average 15 to 31 days. Reassembly daily shedding and punching down with permanent temperature control.
Alcoholic fermentation is a very important phase in the production of wine.
The run-off occurs, then the pressing, these steps consist in passing the bunches of grapes through the press in order to take them out of the vat and to remove all of the juice.
We then put the wine to age in oak barrels, in tuns, in concrete vats and in stainless steel vats for a minimum period of 18 months.
We practice the harvest as for red, by hand. We only harvest white grape varieties.
The bunches are crushed in the bucket but unlike the red, the pressing is direct, because the must does not ferment in the presence of the stalk and the skins.
Fermentation is slow.
The temperature of the must must be maintained with a refrigeration unit at 18 ° degrees. This preserves the finesse of the aromas and good intensity.
The “settling” of the must consists in ridding the must of impurities. We therefore extract the juice by taking only the clear.
As with red, fermentation transforms must into wine.
For a smooth fermentation, we constantly monitor the density and temperature of the wine.
With us, the legend of wine remains an everyday reality.
During each manual harvest, concern for the best is our priority. Oak barrels and tuns are always in the spotlight, it is not a question of blind respect for tradition but of the taste and the unique sensations it provokes: indeed, our wines reveal their aromas, taste and taste. texture, their rich and complex dimension.
This is why, with us, wood aging remains essential.
Our range of wines is the result of high quality standards both in the vineyard and in the cellar. A tribute to our roots, centuries go by, traditions remain, an unchanging respect for the talent and the perseverance of our ancestors who created the wines of excellence.
Our family continues today this love of the vine and wine by bringing a touch of modernity. The optimum quality of our wines is the absolute priority of our property.
