See detailed explanation below in Viticulture Viticulture Vineyards are farmed using organic methods. Prévost calls his farming method “Undocumented viticulture: manual work has been produced after observation adapted to the natural habitat without dogmatism.” Chemical pesticides or herbicides are never used. Vines are planted at a density of 8,333 to 10,000 plants per hectare. Yields are extremely low. Vinification The wine is fermented and aged in barrels for ten months. Malolactic fermentation can occur but is never forced. Only indigenous yeasts are used. Bottling occurs slowly by use of gravity in July with a small amount of sulfur and without fining, filtering or cold-stabilization. All bottles are disgorged at one time in October of the following year. The wines are exclusively extra brut since 1998. No Dosage. Back to Current Releases
