Vinification
The grapes are mainly harvested by machine very early in the night in order to ensure that the wine has a lovely pale appearance.
A short maceration on the skins is performed before pressing. The juices are settled at low temperature. Alcoholic fermentation is temperature-controlled and malolactic fermentation is prevented.
Vinification is carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, in the traditional manner.
