The grapes manually harvested in small boxes, pressed and settled. The vinification follows the traditionnal method : first the juice is fermented at low temperature to preserve the freshness of the sparkling. Then when the wine is bottle, the second fermentation begins and lasts 9 months. This step transforms wine in sparkling wine.
