about the harvest: Grapes were hand-picked at 24° Balling and hand-sorted.

in the cellar : Once the grapes had been crushed, the mash was cooled and fermentation took place over 8 days between 28°C. Upon completion of malolactic fermentation the wine was matured in 300-litre French oak barrels for 18 months.
