They The Pinot Noir grapes are harvested by hand around the first ten days of August. For our Rosé they undergo a short maceration for about an hour and a half so that the tannins and flavour compounds are leached from the grape skins, seeds and stems, into the must. This allows the pink colouring that distinguishes our Rosé, to be extracted. The grapes then undergo a soft pressing. Yeast is added and the fermentation process begins. This takes place in steel barrels at a controlled temperature of 18 ° C. The following spring, the aging process begins by drawing off the wine into bottles ready for a second alcoholic fermentation (tirage). This is the stage when the Rosé wine starts to bubble as a result of the carbon dioxide given off in the process. The wine refinement takes a minimum of 25 months. Once the disgorgement has taken place (deposit in the bottle neck), the bottles are then stored for a further four months or more.
