Vinification: Fermentation takes place in stainless steel with indigenous yeast and a submerged cap. For the submerged cap, a net is fixed at the middle height of the tank to capture solid parts brought to the top by the unfolding carbon dioxide. Once the wine is pressed, it matures on its lees in stainless steel.
Tasting Notes: Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and currants mix with smoky traces, humus and violet, with a delicately herbaceous background and a salty finish.
