Keep it natural, baby.
The wine is made from the wonderful Aligoté grape variety from a four hectare plot in the Cote Challonaisse. The grapes (50% destemmed and 50% whole bunches) were crushed and then, instead of the juice being run off, it was left in contact with the skins for an nine day period allowing the anthocyanins and other polyphenols in the skins and pips to leach into the juice. The presence of the anthocyanins from the skins turns the wine a light orange color and some of the other polyphenols extracted during the maceration give the wine a lovely rounded mouth feel.
