Vinification: This wine has two important allies, namely patience and time: a manual selection of the ripest bunches is followed by intense wine-making methods (fermenting during one month, while the grape skins are regularly soaked by the fermenting juice) for a precise, yet powerful, extraction. The careful ageing (24 months in foudres) allows the finesse of the French oak to be subtlety integrated, whilst respecting and revealing the complex aromas and flavours of these noble Rhône varieties. Then the wine spend at least one year in bottle.

Allergens: Sulphites
