The vineyard was monitored and pampered at all times so that yields did not exceed 2500 liters / ha and the grapes reached the winery in an ideal state of health and ripeness. At the winery, a "proper" winemaking was conceived for this product, different from what was usual in other companies in the region. It consists of an intense selection of clusters followed by a pre-fermentative maceration for 5 days, after which the fermentation is allowed to start very slowly homogeneously throughout the vat, reaching os of fermentation in 3 days, benefiting this wine with the best wine spirits in this case Armagnac, followed by a post-fermentative maceration of 5 long months. The final stage is carried out in 6000 liters, where it is concentrated.
