Grapes are harvested by hand from the beginning of September (Merlot) to first of October (Cabernet Sauvignon). Fermentation takes place in steel tanks using natural yeasts, initially with two pumping over procedures per day and in a second time only one according to how the extraction proceeds. The duration of maceration is estimated on the basis of frequent tasting. After malolactic fermentation that naturally takes place in November the various vinifications are assembled so as to start the wine’s fining.
