VITICULTURE / VINIFICATION

• Harvested by hand
• Grapes are gently pressed
• The must is racked by decanting
• Wines are never chaptalized
• Fermentation occurs naturally with indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled cuves
• Malolactic fermentation begins in the Spring with the help of the bacteria present in the lees
•Wines age on their lees for 8-10 months in stainless steel cuves before bottling

MISCELLANEA

I believe the Henri Perrusset Mâcons should be on every wine list. They are perfect as an aperitif and with so many first courses. It’s the best way to start any evening.
