Winemaking notes

D de Lamarque is aged in French oak barrels (all coming from the French region of Allier) for about 12 to 14 months before being bottled. The way we pick the barrels is extremely meticulous being guided by the idea of respecting the harmony between the oak tannins and the wine tannins. Every year the pairing is different. We traditionally use 2 vintage-old barrels for D de Lamarque. Racking happens every 4 months; the ageing process ends with a natural egg-white filter. When we bottle the wine we do not use any chemical filter, only a slight sieving.
