After a short maceration on the skins for 1-2 days, the first fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. The following spring, this still wine is bottled with an addition of yeast and a second fermentation in bottle follows, producing a fine mousse. The wine matures for 24 months with its yeast lees, gaining flavour and complexity. It is then disgorged to remove the spent yeast and labelled.
