in the vineyard : The grapes are from a small Chardonnay block next to the winery.

about the harvest: It is the first grapes to get harvested every year. We harvest the grapes early in the morning and by hand.

in the cellar : The buches are loaded into the press and pressed without destemming first.
The Chardonnay is then barrel fermented at low temperature. The wine is matured on the lees for the 10 months in 225l French oak barrels. We use only 25% new oak in order to ensure a light oak treatment in our quest for elegance. The wine is bottle matured for 6 months.
