After destemming, a short cold maceration is performed (cryomaceration) to favour the extraction of the complex aromatic content of marcs; a fermentation in barriques at a low temperature of 12 °C is performed. After this phase, it is placed “sur lies” for 5 months and the malo-lactic spontaneous fermentation starts. It is then re ned for 6 months in barriques and 6 months in bottles.
