Grenache Gris is a rare grape variety in the Languedoc, which is unique in that it produces slightly pinkish fruit. During the vinification process, it is therefore important to not allow the colour pigments from the skins to leach into the juice.
The grapes were handpicked and collected in small crates. The entire bunches of grapes were transferred to the pneumatic press without being crushed in order to preserve as much acidity as possible. The must was then allowed to settle at low temperatures. Alcoholic fermentation began in tanks at low temperatures (14 / 15°C) and finished in 600-litre barrels that had been previously used for several vintages. Malolactic fermentation was not conducted so as to preserve all of this wine’s fresh aromas and flavours. Aged on fine lees until bottling.MoreLess
