Winemaking

Warm post-fermentation maceration helps boost the extraction of colours and aromas while softening tannins. Some of the wine is then aged in large 600-litre oak barrels (demi-muids) for 10 months to gain in complexity while limiting the woody notes. The rest of the wine is aged in vats.
