WINE MAKING
Destemmed and softly pressed. Inoculated using Pied de Cuve.
Fermentation runs at temperature controlled between 13° and 14° before being stopped cooling the cuvée down to 2° – 4°.
After bottling fermentation restarts without adding any sugar or yeast.
Using this method wine is not disgorged and lees stay into the bottle.
So higher complexity and aromatic intensity are granted.
Lees also helps to naturally preserve the wine.
