Vinification

Wine without sulphur. All bunches are destemmed, before being put directly into the vats on indigenous yeasts (thanks to the pied de cuve method of doing a very small pre-harvest to start the natural fermentation going). 20 days of maceration, during which 10 days a quick fermentation takes place until there are 0 grams of sugar left. The malolactic fermentation occurred in December 2017. The wine was bottled without being filtered in may 2018 without the addition of sulphur. 13.5% alc and no trace of Brettanomyces when analysed.

Aging

Aged on the lees without adding sulphites in stainless-steel vats and amphoras.

Tasting

The 2017 vintage boasts a deep grenat-colour with a bright purple touch. It lets off intense aromas of very fresh & ripe fruit, with a soft floral note too. The mouth is full, round and delicious with a delicately light sweetness and a lovely freshness. A real fruity wine!
