For this Cuvée only the best bunches are chosen and hand-picked in baskets in September, when they are a little over-ripe; afterwards, the grapes are derasped and fermented at 8/10°C for a few hours (cryosoaking) directly in the press in environment without oxygen. Then the soft pressing and the static decantation of the must take place. Its primary fermentation happens in steel containers with 16°C with selected native yeasts. The new wine, deprived of the grossest dregs, is kept with sugary rests and left on yeasts for 4/6 weeks; after having made it clear, it is poured in an autoclave where the foaming takes place at 16/18°C, a process that lasts approximately 20/25 days. After that it undergoes another refining on the yeasts for a few days. The bottling and the resting in the bottle for at least 1-2 months conclude the cycle.
