Wine Making Style
Using only natural yeasts, fermentations occur naturally, with minimal remontage (pumping over) if any, any very little punch downs. The fermentation takes place in steel tanks, but there still remain a few wooden tanks for experimental purposes. The wines then spend 12 to 24 months depending on the cuvee in oak, of which 15% is new for regional wines, 30% for village wines, 50% for Premier Crus and 70% for the Grand Crus.
