WINE MAKING METHOD
In the spring following harvest, once the cuvée has been made by mixing the batches of wine from the same year with bred wine yeast andliqueur de tirage, the wine base is bottled and left to mature in cellars at a temperature of 8-12 °C. In this period of time the so-called “taking of the froth” fermentation phenomenon takes place. It is a process in which carbon dioxide develops, which is the gas that produces a pressure of 6 atmospheres. To refine the bouquet, the bottles are periodically shaken, thus allowing for the sparkling wine to come into contact with the lees. It is after this period, which is the most fascinating in the process, when the bottles are put onto pupitres (special leaning frames), with the bottles upside down, where for two months they are shaken daily and turned eight times by expert cellar-men. This process allows all the deposits to rise to the neck of the bottle, which can then be removed during the “disgorgement”, which consists of opening the bottle to remove the sediment. Before sealing, using a cork stopper, the bottles are topped up with a Liquer d’expédition, the secret recipe held by each sparkling wine maker.
