Vinification Vinification
After cooling the early picked grapes down at 5 °C, the grapes were pressed as quickly as possible and the juice was left to settle down. Primary fermentation took place, resulting in a base wine with a neutral flavour character, high acidity and just a moderate alcohol by volume, as in the case of champagne. The wine was stabilized and filtered and a proportion of liqueur de tirage was added to encourage the secondary fermentation. The wine was then closed with a crown cap and left to ferment and create the sparkle. The sparkling wine was left over a period of 10 months on the lees, in a process known as yeast autolysis. Acidity: 5.9 g/L TA, pH: 3.02, Residual sugar: 7.3 g/L.
