A fastidious degree of vineyard management is applied, to realize the prodution of wonderful wines, achieved through low crop levels and optimal growing conditions. Fruit is transferred into traditional open top fermenters for vinification, followed by a term of maturation in a high proportion of new, Burgundy coopered French oak barriques.
