A week before the harvest a pied de cuve is prepared in the vineyard, letting the wild yeast reproduce. When the grapes enter the winery, they are left in contact with the skins at a low temperature for 24h. Afterwards it is pressed and inoculated with the pied de cuve. The fermentation and ageing is done in a terracotta amphora during 4 months. During this time the lees are kept in movement. Before bottling the wine is clarified and lightly filtered, therefore sediments may form.
