about the harvest: Harvested from mature vineyards (28 years old) planted to selected Davis and Burgundian clones. The grapes were harvested between 5th February and 5th March 2013 at 21.1° - 23° B.

in the cellar : After cold settling for two days, the juice was tank-fermented with a selection of French yeasts (EC1118 and D47). After fermentation the wine spent 4 months "sur lie" in the tank with occasional lees stirring to accentuate the leesy character.
