Alcoholic fermentation: The bunches are destemmed and the whole berries are immediately placed in 100% new French oak open top barrels. Fermentation occurs with natural yeasts, and the must is kept in contact with the skins for 30 days.

Maturation: The wine then ages in 100% new French barriques for 24 months, of which 6 months are on the fine lees. The wine is then bottled and rests another 24 months before release.
