Exceptional Elegance | Exceptional Enjoyment

in the vineyard : Long cool nights during the ripening period of the Chardonnay and the Pinot Noir Grapes ensure finesse and elegance while still on the vines.

about the harvest: Once ripe, they are picked in the early morning chill to retain a crisp fruit expression in the wine.

in the cellar : After pressing and settling, 80% for the Chardonnay is fermented in stainless steel tanks. The remainder is wood-fermented and left on the lees for eight weeks.
The Pinot Noir is fermented at cooler temperatures to preserve the delicate red berry aromas. Gentle oak maturation imparts a final elegant touch of spice to this original blend.
