The fruit was harvested by hand on the 2nd April 2016. Softer than usual skins resulted in minimal remontage. Skins worked more in the first three days then once per day until sugar dry. It was given 8 days on skins and the cap of the ferment worked as needed. Once pressed, it was then put into 40% medium grained Allier oak. Over the next 14 months it had time to rest before bottling, with no filtration or finings.
