Pressing, juice racking, temperature control during the entire process. This Domaine wine underwent malolactic fermentation and is partially aged in 40% French oak for between six and eight months.
Southeast-facing vines over 20 years old. After a careful selection of grapes from small parcels in the region, they are gently pressed and undergo temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel vats. 10% of the wine is aged in new French oak barrels for 8 months; the rest sees frequent racking before being blended together and bottled.
This wine is best served with appetizers, lobster salad, grilled halibut, chicken with mushroom cream sauce, and cheese.
