The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand. The proportion of de-stemmed grapes and
whole clusters varies depending on the vintage. The wines are punched down daily in order to
extract colour, tannins and aromas from the skin of the grapes. After a 19 day vatting period,
the alcoholic fermentation is complete. The free-run wine is run off using a gravity system
whilst the marc is pressed slowly and gently in order to extract an exceptionally pure press
wine. The wines are aged for 18 months in French oak barrels (50% new oak and 50% one-
wine barrels) which have been selected for their fine grain and moderate toast. The wines are
left to age in our cellars at consistent, natural hygrometry and temperature.
