The harvest is handpicked into shallow boxes, followed immediately by a soft pressing of whole grapes Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, which are processed separately. Pinot Noir after fermentation is aged in steel tanks, while the Chardonnay is fermented and aged in oak barrels for 8 months. There is a separation from the yeast and the preparation of the cuvée of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay respectively at 70% and 30%. The following spring, the wine is bottled with the addition of selected yeasts (tirage). After staying on the lees for at least 48 months, you run the manual riddling and disgorging so without the addition of the liqueur d’expedition.
