Winemaking

This particular wine in the production of our domaine has been inspired by our Blanc de Pinot Noir and our bubbly neighbours of Champagne. The grapes of Aligoté undergo a Champagne style gentle pressing by different levels of pressure to enable a free-run juice extraction and obtain a sweet and acidic juice. In addition, we carry out a bled of Pinot Noir (saignée) in another stainless steel tank regulated at cool temperature. Then, we adapt the quantity of Pinot Noir bled to blend with Aligoté juice to obtain this unique salmony colour! Traditional Rosé fermentation of the must in stainless steel tank with controlled temperature.

Ageing The wine is aged for a short time on its lees before we proceed to the soutirage (racking of the wine). Fermentation malolactic complete. Bottling is done early during the first Spring after the harvest, to keep the incredible freshness and fruitness of this original wine..
