We start harvesting the Chablis parcels located in Chablis, the parcels in Beines need a few more days to reach optimum ripeness before picking.
Once the juices are in stainless steel tanks, they first go through 100% alcoholic fermentation activated with natural yeasts for 15-18 days at low temperature (18°C) then through 100% ma-lolactic fermentation thanks to natural bacteria at 20°C for a few months.
|Ageing||After a racking manipulation to take out the gross lees, the wine ages in tank on fine lees for at least 4 months while we practice a pumping over every week. Then it is fined before a cold filtration and bottling. This last part is done tank by tank, as soon as the bottles are sold, the rest of the wine remaining in tank.|
