This wine comes from several plots situated on the Cote de Lechet.
It is aged on its fine lees during 9 to 12 months. The lees are regularly moved around during the six first months to enrich the structure of the wine.
The blend of the different cuvees is done after a tasting in order to obtain an homogeneous final cuvee.
The vinification is done for 10% in oak barrels and 90% in stainless steel tanks.
The wine is then bottled.
