Winemaker's Notes

This ruby-colored wine is rich in fruit aromas. It is made exclusively out of Gamay, a black grape with a white juice. The vine harvest is handmade according to a very strict selection of the ground provenances. The grapes are carried into open vats not exceeding 1.5 tons of grapes, in order to avoid crushing, and then poured into stainless-steel vats. The semi - carbonic vinification lasts for 8 days until the wine reaches 12,5° degrees of alcohol, all without neither pumping, nor bursting or picking off. Pressing is made made with a single pneumatic press.
