After a week-long skin maceration, the temperature-controlled fermentation continues for ten days. Then, to stop the process, there is a gentle mutage, adding alcohol to fortify the wine.

The grapes are harvested by hand and spread out for drying in the sun for about two weeks on the terraces of the family home. Pressed and vinified, the grapes produce a nectar that will then spend 10 years in oak casks filled to ¾ full to allow the wine to oxidize naturally.
Appearance: A wonderful amber colour with a rare intensity
Nose: Nuts, figs, preserved fruits

Drink as an aperitif, with foie gras or with a chocolate dessert, it will certainly delight your taste buds!
