Winemaking and Aging

To preserve their integrity, grapes are carefully harvested and sorted out by hand.
Before beginning the alcoholic fermentation we make a cold pre-fermentation during 4 to 6 days to work on the phelonic component's exctraction. 10% whole clusters were used. Then full maceration lasts for 15 days during which we'll use only
pigeages (punching the cap). Intensity and numbers are lead to the concentration of tannins, perfumes and colour. Alcoholic fermentation is realized with natural yeasts.

After maceration, free and press wines are separated for aging. Aging process is taking place 100% in traditional Burgundian 228 liters barrels during 13 months. 70% new barrels. We only use French oak coming mainly from Bourgogne, Allier
and Vosges forests. The wine spends 3 months in tanks before bottling

Art of tasting

Owning great wines in your cellar is not enough, you also need to know how to serve them.
Température is an essential element, around 53-57° F for the white and 55-59°F for the red. And if you don't have the right tasting glass which will amplify the wines's aromas, you may considerably reduce your tasting pleasure.
A great glass gives a large ventilation surface to the wine and a tightening neck, which allow the nose to grasp more easily the richness and the complexity of a great wine.
