Cold pre-fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks, long maceration between 3 and 4 weeks at 82°F in new oak barrels on fine lees. Followed by malolactic fermentation and lees stirring in 100% new oak barrels. First, the wine undergoes micro-bullage or microoxygenation and then is aged on lees with regular bâtonnage during 3 months. 18 months aged in new oak barrels (100% French oak).

reflect a top-notch effort. Pairs well with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms, pasta, and cheese.
