Vinification:
the grapes intended for our sparkling wine are always harvested first in order to preserve the bright acidity and to prevent undesirable sugar build-up. After destemming and a rapid pressing the juice goes through controlled fermentation with yeast specifially developed for sparkling wines. Bottling is done after a few months of ageing in tanks. This is a méthode traditionelle sparkling wine so it is kept on its lees for about a year and then it’s disgorged before it’s ready to sell.
