Petite Champagne specialist, we also control all the process of elaboration with our own and unique methods
which make our products different than the others for the constant improvement of the quality:
Grapes varieties : ugni-blanc, folle blanche.
Soils : limestone.
Harvest : maturity controls ; grapes are pressed within 30 minutes after picking up to avoid oxidation.
Pressing : 3 pneumatic presses to fill each one of 50hl very quickly and to reduce oxidation.
Wine-making : fermentation temperatures control (maximum 27° to keep all aromas), and then wine
storage on the lees for optimum conservation without sulfites addition.
Artisanal Distillation: the white wine is distillated with the lees very slowly ; it develops also roundness
and concentrates the floral character of the cognac.
Ageing : aged in "roux" French oak casks then in old casks for much more than the 6 years required by
Reduction : slow (5%vol reduction every 6 months for this XO silver).
Blending : 1 growth ; each blend is aged at least 1 year in barrel.
Bottling : this decanter has been bottled and packaged by hand.
