Overview of the Wine

In order to create a harmonious cuvée, we selected our best plots and then our best cuvées once the wine is made, in order to obtain the optimal blend, bringing the most powerful and complexity. Harmonious Possible, with a perfect integration of the woods with the aromas of wine. The plots are located on clayey-limestone soil, sloping mainly south facing. The age of the vines is 25 to 30 years on average, ensuring the deep and refined expression of the Jura soil.

Reception of the manual harvest, with sorting on sorting table. Total maceration of 12 days in thermoregulated stainless steel tank. Followed regularly throughout the fermentation, incorporating some pumping and pigeage. At the moment of pressing, the press and drop juices of each cuvee are assembled and withdrawn for malolactic fermentation on fine lees.

15% of the blend, ageing in stainless steel tanks allowing to keep the crisp fruit of the vines. 25% of the blend, ageing for 5 - 6 months in wooden tun, allowing to enlarge the aromatic palette, without bringing wood. 60% of the blend ageing in 1-5 years oak barrels. Burgundy barrels (228L) of French origin mainly, but also of Caucasian origin, of light heating.

This careful and controlled breeding allows to harmonize the integration of the aromas of wood and wine.
