VINIFICATION
After the grapes are gently pressed, the must remains in contact with the skins and stored at 60°F for 12 hours. Afterwards, the temperature is raised to at 64°F, and the wine is then fermented; it remains on its lees until July. A liqueur de tirage is added following the traditional method in order to create the wine's sparkling characteristics. The fermentation process continues for 24 months until dégorgement and the liqueur d'expédition is added. This allows the wine to obtain the ideal 4 g/L of residual sugars.
