Vinification: the grapes are harvested early in crates in order to preserve their acidity; they are subsequently pressed, destemmed and sent into a soft press. The decanted must is decanted and inoculated with yeasts and ferments at 13°C in steel tanks. The wine thus obtained remains on the fine lees until January with continuous stirring; at the end of March it is prepared for tirage and bottled
