During the fermentation, soft pumping and punching are carried out, and a part of the grapes is also fermented in French barrels of 132 (US gal lqd) open, making two racking per year without removing the lees, to give the wine volume, smoothness and silkiness. Refining in the bottle before leaving the cellar
Food Pairing : Goes well with cured cheeses, grilled meats, hunting meat and traditional stews.
