in the cellar : 
Fermentation in 2000 litre open wooden fermenters.
Fermentation of about three weeks at a temperature of 24°C and then a maceration post-fermentation of another three weeks. Pressing takes place in an old basket press and the wine is transferred directly to the barrel for malolactic fermentation.
Oaking: French oak barrels, Bordeaux Traditional selection (10% new). Tight grain. The ageing takes place for 12 months on the lees and then we rack and an additional year of ageing takes place in big oval casks (foudre) on the fine lees.
