The vinification

 

After the hand picking of the grapes into small crates, the grapes are completely (100%) destemmed before passing along a triple sorting table. One of these tables being an optical sorting table.
The different stages of vinification integrate the latest developments in wine making technology. This includes, amongst other processes, a system by which the different fermentation vats are filled entirely by gravity. At the same time, another innovation is the original system of robotic and hydraulic punching down that are installed in the concrete fermentation vats. At the same time, all fermentation vats are equipped with a system of thermo-regulation.

Maturing occurs in barrels of which 65% are renewed every year and takes place over a period of twelve months.
