Winemaking Notes: Ovalie fermented in concrete eggs with native yeast. Malolactic fermentation occurred. The wine was not fined or filtered. The wine aged for four years on the lees in bottle. For this cuvée, the bottles are stored with natural cork instead of crown cap, thus enabling a more intensive approach. There was zero dosage.
