Winemaking Notes: Fabien employs a non-interventionist vinification philosophy. Grapes are picked by hand from 40 year old vines and destemmed. A 30 day fermentation process occurs spontaneously with native yeast in concrete vats. 'Mas del Perie' Acacias is aged for 18 months in casks.
Tasting Notes: Each of Fabien’s AOC cuvées is a vineyard designate, which is why he uses a Burgundy bottle instead of the traditional Bordeaux.
