Fermentation
Alcoholic fermentation is conducted at low, stable temperatures in single vineyard batches in order to optimize the aromatic complexity inherent to each terroir. All cuvees undergo malolactic fermentation developing a characteristic smoothness and the first inklings of those brioche-like aromas. 5%-10% of barrel fermented wine is used in the final blend.
Aging
The wines are bottled for a second fermentation called 'prise de mousse' (capturing the sparkle) then stored at 53 degrees in chalk cellars where they age for a minimum of 6 years.
