After destemming and crushing, the grapes are chilled at 12°C before pressing. After decanting in an isothermal tank for 24 hours, fermentation begins at controlled temperatures.

Fermentation is interrupted by chilling to 0°C and then centrifuging, once the residual sugars reach about 22g/l. Finally, the wine is clarified, filtered and bottled.
