Winemaking Notes: The grapes ferment slowly in oak barrels and stainless steel vats with native yeast. The wine is aged on its lees. To balance the richness and depth with bright acidity, Raphaël and Vincent make certain that the wine does not go through malolactic. Second fermentation occurs in bottle under cork instead of crown cap. The wine ages for 24-36 months in the cellar before release. Dosage is 7 g/L.
