ABOUT THIS WINE
Maceration and vinification take 2 to 3 weeks. Indigenous yeasts only. Maceration and fermentation temperatures under total control to preserve freshness.
Joseph Drouhin seeks total control of the process of extraction; extraction gives colour and substance but should never be detrimental to the finesse and typical character of the wine.
"Pigeage" (punching down of the cap during fermentation): once a day until half of fermentation is done; one pumping over ("remontage") per day till the end of the fermentation.
Vertical press; separation of free run juice from pressed juice.
