Le Merlot – AOP

Wine Making Process : Traditional vinification at 27°C in thermoregulated vats with a long 27 day-maceration for better extraction of the colours, solid matter and tannins. Automatic malolactic fermentation in concrete vats. The wines are racked 2 or 3 times but are not fined or filtered. Maturation for 12 months in 0 to 1-year-old Burgundian barrels. Plate-filtered once before bottling.
