Type of winemakingThe must fermented at 18°C in tanks.
Type of ageingThe 2020 vintage was matured in vats on the lees for one year. It was then blended with the 2021 vintage at the end of its fermentation. The resulting wine was then matured for five months on the lees of the 2021. Bottling took place on 30 March 2022.
