THE PERFECT AGREEMENT: Pan-fried scampi with citrus fruits.
SERVICE TEMPERATURE: Between 12°C and 14°C.
VINIFICATION : Use of the principle of gravity to avoid any pumping over that could be detrimental to the quality of the wine. Pneumatic pressing of short duration (1h30 to 2h00) for a delicate separation between the solid and liquid parts of the grapes. Very light static settling in order to preserve enough fine lees to allow the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations to take place naturally. The must is put into French oak barrels (on average 6 years old) for 40 to 50% of the cuvée. The balance is vinified in small stainless steel vats.
MATURING: 13 to 14 months including 5 to 6 months on fine lees in French oak barrels for 40 to 50% of the cuvée. The ageing is finished in small stainless steel vats.
