The organic grapes are hand-harvested late August and destemmed. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel tanks with skins for 48 hours. At 10 g/l of residual sugar, the wine is bottled during fermentation. Fermentation finishes in the bottle and the wine ages for 6 months in bottle, giving a lightly sparkling Petillant Naturel style. The wine is not disgorged so there will be sediment and tartrates in the bottle.
