Grapes are hand picked and softly pressed without any de-stemming. Fermentation takes place in steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 16-18°C. The wine is left to mature on its lees until late spring, when it is bottled with selected yeasts to induce the second fermentation. The disgorgement and dosage occur after 24 months. The wine then rests for at least three months.
