The juice obtained after pressing is cooled to around 10°C for 24 h to allow the sedimentation of unwanted materials (lees, plant debris, ...). After settling, the must is fermented in new oak barrels of 225 l (wood from the Vosges). The fermentation temperature is maintained at about 17-18 ° C.
Breeding: In the end of fermentation, after 10-15 days, the wine is racked and left on the lees with weekly batonage for several months until bottling the following spring.
