VINIFICATION: The ripe clusters are picked into small boxes and then subjected to a natural drying process in special rooms, over a period that varies with the vintage. The clusters are then subjected to rigorous quality selection and only the healthiest are pressed. The fermentation begins with yeasts that have been specifically selected for very concentrated musts. It can last up to 50 days, and pumpovers and/or délestage are carried out daily. The wine is pressed off in small presses, then goes to 100% French oak barriques with extra-fine grain, where it spends 24 months. After a further brief maturation in tanks, it is bottled and ages a further 12 months before release
