VINIFICATION AND REFINING — The grapes are harvested by hand using boxes, steeped in a cold horizontal press for eight hours and the must is cleaned through settling. 20% of fermentation takes place in Allier barriques, and the remaining 80% in steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 10-12°C.
When the fermentation is over, the product thus obtained is not poured off and therefore remains in the same containers to mature for about six months at a constant temperature. At the end of this period, the wine is assembled and bottled. There follows a further long period of refining in the bottle
