A portion of the Chardonnay (about 20%) ferments and refines in barrique, while the remaining Chardonnay and Pinot Noir ferment, separately by variety, in steel at a controlled temperature of 14-16 ° C, followed by aging on the lees until spring forwarded. The various wines are then combined (Chardonnay from wood, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from steel) with the addition of the liqueur de tirage, bottling and arrangement in the cellar at 10-12 ° C for the second fermentation and resting on the lees for an average of at least 60 months.
