The grapes are picked by hand and pressed as whole clusters, without being crushed. After settling for 24 hours, fermentation begins without addition of commercial yeast. The wine is then aged 70% tank and 30% in new barrels for 16 months, during which time a few stirrings occur. The wine is lightly fined and filtered before bottling.
The vines are located in Chevannes and are 50 years of age.
