WINEMAKER NOTES: The wine is vinified in barriques and kept in wood for a year then bottled the following December a little over a year after harvest. This wine is an homage to the methods of Jules Chauvet and does not see a drop of sulfur throughout its lifetime (harvest, vinification, bottling). Therefore it must be drunk quickly or stored in the dark at a proper temperature (14°C or less).
