Sustainable and environmentally conscious culture
Whole grapes sorted without SO2 with twice-daily punching down for 3 weeks. Alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts without artificial thermoregulation. Malolactic fermentation.
On lees, reductive ageing without racking, with riddling without SO2 for 16 months followed by ageing in foudres for 2 months.
Structured, mineral and rich wine. Its aromatic palette is both straight and fruity: small red and black musky and spicy fruits. Its flavor is fleshy and tasty with a chalky touch that gives it a strict and deep dressing.
