|Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes are hand-picked the first or second week of September, crushed in a pneumatic soft press and subsequently fermented at controlled temperature into stainless steel tanks with maceration on the skins. A rose’ wine is then obtained through the ancestral ‘saignee’ technique. The rose’ still wine is kept at low temperature on its lees until February following the harvest, when it’s bottled for a secondary fermentation, to produce natural effervescence and carbonic pressure (4 years sur-lattes). 5 gr/lt dosage.|
